During Pregnancy

When you discover or suspect you are pregnant you can contact your community midwife through your GPs surgery or get the telephone number from maternity reception on 0191 445 2763.

The community midwife will then arrange to meet you and book your pregnancy with maternity services. You have a choice of where to have your baby, at home, with us at the QE or a neighbouring unit. We really hope you choose home or us so we can be with you throughout your special time.

Your community midwife is usually your lead professional and you may not need to attend the hospital unless indicated other than for ultrasound scans. Some women require shared care (Midwife and Consultant) if their pregnancy is viewed as high risk.
