Adult Hearing Test

Antenatal Clinic and Postnatal Care

If you know you are pregnant, please make an appointment with a doctor or nurse practitioner. During this appointment the doctor will ask you to book your first antenatal appointment for the Friday afternoon clinic. This clinic is attended by a midwife who is allocated from Lewisham Hospital.

Whilst we try to have the same midwife every week, there are occasions when this is not possible due to circumstances beyond our control. It is a long appointment and, depending on your needs, may last for up to an hour. Therefore please be prepared to be seen for this length of time. Your follow-up antenatal visits are by appointment on a Monday morning from 9.15 until 11.45am and Monday afternoon from 1.00 - 4.00pm. Your appointment time is 10 minutes.

If for any reason during your antenatal care you would like to speak to a midwife, information on how to do this is contained in the Yellow Book which will be given to you during your first appointment.

Care is mainly carried out by the midwives with the full support and back-up of the practice GPs and Lewisham Hospital. We support the right of the mother to choose where they have their baby, ie either at home or in hospital, and the midwife will discuss this with you. After the birth of your baby, the midwife and the health visitor will monitor the progress of both you and your baby, and give advice on feeding and immunisation. Postnatal checks are carried out by Dr Sau during normal surgery hours. Please book an appointment in the usual way.
