Labour concerns

I'm concerned about my baby's health

 

During your pregnancy you may experience concerns which require you to seek the advice of a midwife outside of your planned clinic appointments.

Our triage service provides dedicated midwives 24 hours per day to provide advice and support. The telephone number to call to access the triage service is 01695 656604. 

When you phone you will be asked questions about your pregnancy and the reasons for your call, it may be helpful to have your hand held records available at this time.

Once the triage midwife has all the relevant information she will advise you of what you need to do next. This could be:

  • Advice and reassurance that all appears well at this time and you do not need to be physically assessed. She may also make some recommendations of actions you can take yourself and also advise you to call again if you remain concerned
  • Advise you to attend the triage assessment area within a specified time frame
  • Advise you to attend either delivery suite or the triage area for immediate assessment
  • Advise you that you need emergency admission to delivery suite and that she will contact the emergency services for a paramedic ambulance to attend your location
