Maternity Services and Obstetric Care
Ante-natal appointments are available in our daytime and evening clinics for those who work. Our doctors do not oversee homebirths but these can be arranged with our local community midwives. We do provide complete post-natal care including new birth visits.
We can arrange fertility tests for you if you are having a problem conceiving a baby.
The surgery also runs a Mother and Baby Clinic on Wednesday mornings, where a doctor conducts post-natal checks and new baby’s 8-week developmental checks. If you are a new mother you should automatically receive an appointment for this clinic after your baby is born but please do contact the surgery if you have not heard from us by the time your baby is 4 weeks old.
A baby clinic is held at York Gardens Children’s Centre Lavender Road SW 11 2UG Thursday 9:30-11:30am run by the community health visitors.
