Antenatal Care

We are here to care for you during your pregnancy. Our GPs work with the community midwives to help care for you.


First Presentation

Please complete an Accurx to let us know about your pregnancy as early as possible.

You can self-refer for maternity care at the Homerton.

16 weeks check

Just after 16 weeks of pregnancy we encourage you to see the GP. At this appointment, the GP will discuss the results of your screening test with you, check your blood pressure, and make sure your nutritional intake is correct.


Midwife checks

The community midwife comes to Elsdale Street once a week to see pregnant patients.

The Homerton have lots of helpful resources to support you during your pregnancy and after. Due to coronavirus antenatal classes are suspended and instead there are resources online.
