The NHS offers a fantastic service to all and we are very proud to provide care for mothers-to-be as NHS employees. However, we understand that the timing of appointments can sometimes be hard to fit around the other commitments of life, like work and family. The length of appointments may also leave you feeling like you haven’t had the chance to ask all those questions you have, or to fully discuss your thoughts and preferences around labour and birth. You may also prefer to see the same person all through your pregnancy with all the benefits this offers.
At SHEcares, we are committed to providing the time and expertise to allow you to explore your thoughts and feelings around your pregnancy, whilst answering any questions or concerns you may have in the comfort of your own home. All appointments will be carried out by a registered Midwife and include a full antenatal check on both you and your baby’s wellbeing.
We offer a full range of antenatal care options. These range from one off appointments to address any specific concerns you have at any point or to formulate your birth plan, to full care throughout your pregnancy, as the perfect adjunct to the care you receive from your local maternity service.
Please note, we do not provide emergency care. If you suffer from any of the following during your pregnancy, it is vital that you contact the maternity department you are booked with immediately:
blurred vision or flashing lights in your eyes
leaking of liquor (fluid around your baby)
persistent itching, particularly on the palms of your hands or soles of your feet
severe abdominal pain
change or reduction in baby’s movements
