Throughout your pregnancy you will be closely monitored by both midwives working within the hospital and those in the community. You will have a named midwife responsible for your care and you are welcome to contact her should you have any specific worries or concerns. If a problem does occur during your pregnancy you will be referred to one of our consultants for an appointment.
Our planned assessment unit is located on level G on St Catherines Ward and provides care for women who are experiencing complex pregnancies. The unit is open 8am-8pm six days a week staffed by a team of experienced midwives and obstetricians. You may be given an appointment to attend here if you require regular monitoring for a wide variety of conditions such as diabetes or raised blood pressure.
