Maternity Services 

pregnant2We have a fantastic midwifery team locally who offer a very personal level of care.

stork

The majority of patients choose to go to Cambridge (the Rosie) or Bury St Edmunds to have their baby, although some do choose to have their babies at home, and are well supported by the midwifery team.

When you find out you are pregnant come and see us. The practice supports home deliveries for our registered patients. We will do our best to be there if you or the midwife feel that you need or want us there and are happy to see you at any time in your pregnancy in addition to your midwifery appointments if you would like to see us.

 

Toddlers

docbabyWe aim to offer a child friendly surgery. We offer all the usual baby immunisations, and if you have any worries about your baby or toddler please don’t hesitate to come and see us. We will always speak to you or see you on the day if you feel your baby or toddler is unwell.

Please don’t hesitate to call.

Health Visitors
