You should start your antenatal care as soon as possible once you know you’re pregnant. You can do this by referring yourself directly to maternity services near you. This is usually done by filling in an online form on your local hospital or NHS trust website.

Antenatal care is the care you get from health professionals during your pregnancy. It’s sometimes called pregnancy care or maternity care. You’ll be offered appointments with a midwife, or sometimes a doctor who specialises in pregnancy and birth (an obstetrician).
