Antenatal Clinic

This is held every Thursdays at our Goldthorpe branch.

The clinic is run by the midwives. If you become pregnant your details will be passed onto the midwives who will contact you and arrange a ‘booking appointment’ at which the midwife will ask you a few questions and carry out some general health checks. You will be seen regularly throughout your pregnancy at the practice or at the local hospital or both.
