Electronic Maternity Notes - Badger Notes App

Continuity of care through your pregnancy, labour and your postnatal period is provided by a team of midwives and possibly doctors within the community and the Royal Surrey Hospital. 

This care continuity is enabled by an electronic notes system called BadgerNet. This means that your notes can be updated with ease at each maternity visit in real-time. This secure system can only be accessed by your midwife and the healthcare professionals directly involved in your care. 

The free Badger Notes App gives you secure access to your maternity notes and provides you with the convenience to carry, personalise and track your pregnancy journey as part of your digitally connected day to day life. 

What information is held in the electronic maternity notes?

This is your maternity care record, like your medical notes held by your GP, and records routine antenatal test results, screening and diagnostic test results, along with discussions with your midwife and other healthcare professionals directly involved in your care.

How do I access the Badger Notes App?

At your booking appointment your midwife will register you onto the electronic maternity notes system. To complete this process, you will be required to enter your email address, mobile number and a security phrase.

After this registration you can access your maternity care records using your mobile or PC/tablet.
