Newly Pregnant ? - what to do next
Once your pregnancy has been confirmed by a GP, speak to our reception staff as soon as possible, inform them of your pregnancy and give them your contact details. They will arrange for a midwife to contact you to arrange your first consultation.
Preganancy & Whooping Cough Vaccinations
The government has advised recently that, due to an increase in Whooping Cough in new born babies, all pregnant women between 28 and 38 weeks should have the Whooping Cough Vaccine.
Patients should call the surgery to make an appointment with a nurse to have this vaccine as soon as possible. For more informations follow the link below.
If you think that you are pregnant confirm this with a proprietary test kit available form local pharmacies. Once this is confirmed you will need to contact maternity services at Harrogate District Hospital and complete the pregnancy booking form to be seen by a midwife. Please follow the link below to access maternity services.
It is important that you complete the request as early as possible, ideally within the 7 to 10 week 'window' to allow routine tests to be done at the optimum time.
A good web site with a huge amount of information is The Pregnancy Care Planner - see the link on our main menu.
