The more you know about your pregnancy and your options, the more you are likely to feel in control. The information given here is based on The Pregnancy Book, which your midwife should give you at your first appointment.
If you are pregnant, please pick up a maternity pack from reception, this will have details about contacting the Midwife, for an initial booking visit. You do not need to see a GP.
The community midwife team are based at the Princess Anne Wing, RUH, Bath. You can leave a message for them on 01225 824669.
