What If I Have Complications


What do I do in an emergency?

In an emergency

If you, your baby or someone else is seriously ill or in immediate danger, call for an ambulance by dialling 999. If you need to speak to a midwife urgently, you can dial our triage maternity helpline on 01604 523529.

What If I have complications during pregnancy?

If any complications arise, or if you have a known medical problem, your Midwife will refer you to an Obstetrician who will then become the lead professional in your care. Your Midwife may also refer you to other professional colleagues, such as an Anaesthetist, Physiotherapist, Dietician or Psychologist.

Many of these professionals run regular clinics and educational sessions in the antenatal and postnatal periods. They will provide you with up-to-date information to help you make informed choices about your care. However, your midwife will continue to be involved in your care and provide you with help and support.
