Community Midwives

The Practice midwife can be contacted by telephoning 01235 764343; a midwife is available 24 hours a day in the event of an emergency.

They are happy to advise on Pre-conception care. This is most important if you are using the contraceptive pill. The midwife will also help support those who have suffered a miscarriage. They will also share in all your antenatal care. Parent education regarding birth and labour is available and they will advise you on how this can be arranged.

All Post-natal mothers are seen either in their own home or by appointment at Wantage Maternity Hospital. The team of midwives and support staff based at the Wantage maternity unit are available to offer support and advice throughout pregnancy and the post natal period, specialising in breast feeding help and support and offer the opportunity for low risk pregnancies to be delivered within the Wantage Maternity unit.

Health Visitors

Health visitors are qualified nurses or midwives with specialist public health training. They are available to support you in pregnancy, once your baby is born and until your child becomes five years of age. Health visiting teams advise on and support the health and wellbeing of babies, children and their families. Our team includes a community staff nurse and health care support worker.

They work with other agencies such as GPs, midwives, school health nurses, Children’s Centres and early years settings. They are trained in child development and safeguarding children.

Health visitors lead the Healthy Child Programme (Department of Health, 2009) and work to promote equal health opportunities in order to promote health and well being of children, families and communities.
