You're pregnant - what next?

Congratulations on your pregnancy, you can make an appointment with your midwife - either via your GP or if you live in the following areas, by contacting one of our maternity units at Selby, Whitby or Bridlington directly.  If you are not registered with a GP or are having difficulty getting an appointment please click here for more information.

Antenatal classes

If you are a first time mum ask your midwife about local antenatal classes.

You can also access our online ante natal classes for a tour of our maternity units at York and Scarborough Hospitals including what to bring, what to expect in labour and advice from our infant feeding coordinator.

Home birth

You can choose to birth your baby at home.  Your midwife can talk to you more about this.  You can access more information about home birth in our guidance here or download our leaflet which explains more.

Visiting update

To protect our patients, staff, visitors and the community, we are again restricting visitors to all our hospitals sites so please read our latest guidance for full details before coming to our hospitals.

The decision to restrict visitors during this time has been very difficult and made only after careful consideration as we witness wider social restrictions to prevent the spread of COVID-19 in light of the highly transmissible OMICRON variant.  The guidance will be reviewed regularly.
