The midwife is based at the Princess of Wales Community Hospital and she holds a clinic at Davenal House Surgery on Monday afternoons. The midwife can be contacted on the above number or alternatively non urgent messages can be left with reception. When you have had your pregnancy confirmed you will need to book a first antenatal appointment with one of the doctors who will enter you into the system for arranging appointments to follow the pregnancy via the midwife and hospital antenatal clinics.
