Now you have had your pregnancy confirmed the Community Midwife, Doctor and Health Visitor will share your care.
When you first discover that you are pregnant you will be advised to contact the midwife’s clinic at the Hospital for your initial assessment.
Most women deliver at the East Surrey Hospital, however home deliveries may be possible in suitable cases.
At the initial visit the midwife will cover your past medical and obstetric history and will arrange for you to have blood tests and scans.
The first scan is normally at 11 weeks and can be used to screen for some abnormalities. A more detailed scan is conducted at around 22 weeks.
After your initial visit, it is usual to be seen regularly at the GP Surgery either by a Doctor or Midwife. In more complicated cases are seen by a Specialist Obstetrician.
Following your delivery the midwife will attend to you for the first 10 days with the Health Visitor visiting you at around the 10th day.
A postnatal check is carried out at 6 weeks, usually at the GP Surgery or at the Hospital for complicated cases.
Your baby will have a physical check at 6 weeks by the Doctor, this first appointment will not include your babies first immunisation as this cannot be done before your baby is at least 8 weeks old.

Mary McAllister is our Specialist Physiotherapist. She can assess your need for physio, give you advice on how best to manage your aches and pains and if necessary, refer you on for further investigations.
She cannot prescribe or change your medication. However she is able to send a request to any of the GPs if she feels a particular medication would be beneficial for you.
If you have sustained whip-lash, Mary can help you with this too.
Having a urine infection is no fun for anyone. However if you think that you may have a urine infection please phone the surgery to see if you need your urine tested by one of the clinicians or if you need your urine to be sent off to the laboratory for testing.
If instructed to bring in a urine sample, please do so by 11.00am.
Please do not drop in a urine sample without being informed to do so by one of the staff at the surgery as it may be destroyed without testing.
If you are due a blood test as part of your ongoing long term condition, please double check with reception as to when your next blood test is due.
We cannot do a blood test because a patient wants one done; it must be authorised by a GP first. If you feel you may need a blood test due to ongoing symptoms or feeling run down, please book an appointment with a GP. They will advise you on the best course of action for you.
Please be aware if you need a GP to do a non-NHS letter for you and there is a charge, you must pay for the letter before the GP will do your letter or form.
Likewise, if you request a copy of any information and there is a charge, you must pay before we will photocopy or print the information off for you.
Should there be an unclear amount to be charged to you, the receptionist will enquire on your behalf and we will inform you on the decision of the cost the GP has made to do the work for you.
Please note, non-NHS paperwork is secondary to the work the GP has to do on a daily basis and may be delayed due to GP workload.
