We offer "shared care" between our team of midwives at the health centre and the hospital of your choice. You are entitled to choose to attend any of the Glasgow hospitals which have a maternity unit for your ante natal care and birth. You will be offered an initial booking appointment followed by regular appointments at the antenatal clinics on Tuesdays and Thursdays where your progress will be monitored throughout your pregnancy.
The practice health visitors are trained in the care of mothers and their babies from birth through their early years and are available to give you advice during your pregnancy and after the birth. After the birth you will be visited by the midwife and health visitor at your home. They will give you advice on childcare and your own health, and also invite you to attend immunisation clinics, developmental checks and a weekly baby clinic.
The practice nurses will carry out your post natal check at around 6 weeks after your baby is born and give you advice on issues such as contraception.
