Maternity care is shared between the doctors and midwife. All doctors provide antenatal and post-natal care. Pre-conception advice is available from your doctor.

A Midwife clinic is available Friday morning at Croase Orchard Surgery

Wye Valley Trust has started a new way for women to access maternity services. If you are newly pregnant, you can now enter your details on a secure website that will send a referral straight to the Herefordshire community midwifery team. You don’t need to contact us or make an appointment with a GP – the midwifery team will tell us about your pregnancy. However, if you have any urgent concerns about your health during early pregnancy, please do contact us for advice.

The best time to fill in the online form is when you are 6 to 7 weeks pregnant. A maternity support worker will then phone you to arrange your first appointment with your midwife (called your booking appointment), which usually takes place when you are 8 to 10 weeks pregnant.

If you need support filling in the online form, you can ask someone else to do the form for you, for example your partner or a relative. If you are having problems with getting online, or understanding the form, please ring the community midwifery office on (01432) 372965.
