From 1 June 2021, as part of maternity services improvements, we have developed a new booking system for people who are newly pregnant or have moved into the area and would like to access midwifery services in Gloucestershire.
Rather than presenting to a GP surgery, you can access maternity services via a portal on the Gloucestershire Hospitals website. Once the simple booking form has been submitted, a midwife from your local team will make contact within a few days.
You can make contact as early as you wish after a positive pregnancy test, but ideally, before 10 weeks of pregnancy so your midwife can discuss relevant information about your personal and family history which may impact on your pregnancy.
Before you fill in your booking form, you will need:
- Your address and postcode
- Your GP Surgery postcode
- The date of your last period (estimated)
To ensure the wellbeing of you and your baby, it’s vital that you have antenatal care, and this is your first step.
