Having a baby in Haverhill

storkWhen it comes to midwifery services we are fortunate to have an excellent local team of midwives who are based in the Old Health Centre opposite the surgery and who work with us to enrue that you and your baby have the best possible care.

You can choose to have your baby at any hospital you wish - most people in and around Haverhill opt either for the Rosie Maternity Hospital in Cambridge, or for the West Suffolk Hospital in Bury St Edmunds. You can also opt to have your baby at home.
Both hospitals offer excellent care. The West Suffolk is smaller, quieter and a little closer, whilst The Rosie is a large modern teaching hospital on the edge of Cambridge.

Whatever you choose we will do our best to support you. We are very happy to see you in the surgery even prior to conception, to offer pre-conception advice about eating healthily, avoiding drugs and medications that may harm your baby, quitting smoking, taking folic acid tablets and generally getting yourself into the best possible physical shape for pregnancy.
Once you are pregnant we encourage you to come and see one of the doctors. We will arrange for the midwives to see you, and can talk to you again about medication, diet, health, taking folic acid, and what's going to happen next!

Antenatal appointments
Most antenatal appointments are now with the midwives, who will arrange ultrasound scans, blood tests and anything else that you need in pregnancy. If your pregnancy is medically straighforward you may not need to be seen at the hospital until you go into labour.

staff_stork2Home deliveries
The local midwives are supportive of home deliveries. Doctors are not allowed to advertise themselves as home delivery GPs these days, but we are nevertheless also supportive and some of us have a particular interest in obstetrics and midwifery. We are very happy to attend if called by your midwife - but usually we're not needed. Childbirth is after all a normal condition, you are not ill and may not need a doctor at all.If you would like to have your baby at home talk to us or your midwife.
