Local Support

Derby Hospitals Maternity Service

Pregnancy is a time that may raise a lot of questions and you will need to make all sorts of decisions. Even if this is not your first pregnancy, things may have changed. There is a lot of information available to help you and all our leaflets can be easily found on these pages.

Your midwife will advise you to read certain information around the time that you are likely to be asked to make certain decisions about your care. Please have a look at all the pages as well as it may be very good to read information during your pregnancy about what to expect after your baby is born. If you prefer to have a printed copy of any of the leaflets, please ask your midwife or at the Antenatal Clinic.
