Antenatal care

Antenatal care is medical and midwifery attention given to the expectant mother and her developing baby. Good antenatal care also involves the mother caring for herself and her baby by following medical advice, practising good nutrition, getting plenty of rest, exercising sensibly and avoiding things that could harm her baby. Good antenatal care is the key to a successful pregnancy and a healthy future for your baby. We provide a woman-centred approach to ensure this is possible.

  • All minor and open gynaecological procedures such as:
  • Difibulation (correction of FGM)
