Based at Barnet General Hospital (BGH), midwives will provide shared care with the GPs before and after delivery. Once pregnancy has been confirmed by the GP, and so referral made to the antenatal clinic at BGH, an appointment for dating ultrasound scan (normally 12 - 14 weeks) will be sent.
This is followed by an appointment with Team 6 midwives at approximately 14 - 16 weeks, including full antenatal check, information giving, etc. Subsequent care will be provided in accordance with the recommended NICE guidelines. www.nice.org.uk
Some women will have shared care with the consultant team at BGH, others will have midwife-led care provided at the GP surgery, depending on medical and obstetric history.
Antenatal clinics are held every Monday afternoon at the GP surgery.
Following the birth of your baby and discharge home from hospital, home visits will be provided by Team 6 midwives on a needs basis, normally 10 - 14 days, when your care will be handed over to the health visitor.
