You're pregnant - what next?
Congratulations on your pregnancy, you should now make an appointment with your GP to book with a midwife. If you are not registered with a GP or are having difficulty getting an appointment please click here for more information.
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.
If you have a straightforward pregnancy and both you and the baby are well, you might choose to give birth at home. Please speak to your midwife about this option or attend one of the Trust's home birth information sessions hosted by midwives. For more information about the sessions click here or download our leaflet which explains more about home birth.
