Baby bump heart

If you need urgent advice or have a concern regarding your pregnancy, please call the Pregnancy Advice Line on 03001 235 473, available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

If you've just found out you're pregnant you need to let us know, which you can do using our

Maternity Referral Form

If you would prefer not to use the online form, simply download and print a copy. Post the completed form to Antenatal Clinic, Level B, Royal Surrey County Hospital, Egerton Rd, Guildford GU2 7XX. Please remember that knowingly giving incorrect or false details to secure NHS care you are not entitled to could result in criminal prosecution.

All pregnancies should be booked with a midwife by 10 weeks to ensure you receive all the health information and advice you need in those crucial early weeks of your baby’s development.

There are five ways to book your pregnancy with us:

  1. If you live in the Guildford and Waverley area, please make an appointment through your GP surgery for the midwife booking clinic
  2. If you are ‘out of area’ but live in Liphook/Liss, Pinehill, Petersfield, Bentley and Midhurst areas, please ring The Forest Surgery, Bordon and make a ‘Royal Surrey’ midwife booking appointment on 01420 477 111
  3. If you live in any other area, you will receive an appointment for a scan and booking appointment once you have completed the on line referral form
  4. If you would like to birth your baby at home with our Surrey Hills Home Birth Team, please call the team directly on 07467 339 395
  5. If you would like to book for private obstetric care with Mr Osama Abughazza please call his secretary, Miss Ann Briant, on 01483 442 786 or email her at ann.briant@bmihealthcare.co.uk.

You need to complete the online referral form before you make your appointment. Failure to do so, will mean the midwife is unable to undertake your booking assessment and your first ultrasound scan and screening tests may be delayed.

You will need your NHS number to register for maternity care. If you don't know it, please contact your GP.

You will receive an appointment for your first ultrasound scan in the post after your midwife booking appointment. If you haven't received a letter within 14 days, please contact the Antenatal Clinic on 01483 571 122 ext. 4920.

If you've already booked to have your baby with us we are delighted to be sharing this exciting journey with you. To begin, please explore our website where you will find a wealth of information, details of all our popular education classes and the range of options available to have your baby.
