Maternity Self-referral Form

If you would like to have your Baby with us please complete the online Self-referral form below. This applies to your first appointment for each pregnancy only.

Details around how your information is used can be found in the Your Information, your rights leaflet. If for any reason you are unable to complete the form please either print a copy or contact your GP Surgery for a paper copy.

We will not turn any women away or delay their maternity treatment even if they are not eligible for free care. Our Overseas Visitors & Liaison team will work with women to assess their eligibility and to support them and discuss payment arrangements if they are not eligible for free NHS treatment. Further information can be found in the Information for people seeking free NHS Hospital Treatment leaflet.

There is lots of information on this site about pregnancy and birth. You might want to take a look at information about Screening Tests for You and Your Baby and what to expect from each midwifery appointment during pregnancy before you meet your midwife.

It is recommended that all pregnant women take 400 micrograms (mcg) of folic acid each day. Ideally you should take this from before you are pregnant until you are 12 weeks pregnant. Some women, including those with a Body Mass Index over 30, or those with a medical condition such as Epilepsy, are advised to take 5 mg a day.

The Department of Health also recommends that all adults, including pregnant and breastfeeding women, need 10 micrograms (mcg) of vitamin D a day, and should take a supplement containing this amount.


Please ensure that you make an appointment with a Community Midwife via your GP for when you are between 8 and 11 weeks pregnant after submitting the form.

If you have Type 1 or Type 2 diabetes please ring Antenatal Clinic on 01603 286795, Monday to Friday 08:30 - 17:00 where an appointment for the next clinic can be made for you, once you have completed the form.
