The local Midwives will co-ordinate your care during your pregnancy, right from the moment you discover you are expecting.
Please contact Trowbridge Birth Centre within one month of discovering you are pregnant. They can be contacted on 01225 711314, Monday to Thursday between 09:00 and 12:00.
If you need to contact your Midwife, please telephone 01225 765840.
You do not need to see a GP to confirm you are pregnant unless you have concerns you wish to discuss.
The Health Visitors are qualified nurses, with special training and experience in child health, health promotion and education. They offer practical support and health advice in many situations, including child development, nutrition, sleep issues and behaviour management in the under 5’s.
They can be contacted directly at Melksham Hospital on 01225 701048.
Normally the Health Visitors will see your child at the following intervals:
• Following birth, at home, between 10-14 days with follow up support if needed
• At 9-11 months
• At 2 years
