Antenatal midwifery services package
Antenatal midwifery care
The first visit is called the booking visit – sometimes booking is spread over two visits as we cover a lot of ground. I ask questions about many aspects of your life in order to begin recording our journey together in a set of personal notes. The questions relate to your medical and pregnancy history, but also include psychological, emotional and social aspects of your life. You receive a copy of these notes when you are discharged from midwifery care and they provide a detailed record of your pregnancy, birth and the postnatal period.
Following the booking visit I make antenatal visits according to the following schedule, which is open to adaptation according to your needs and wishes: Booking for midwifery care between 8-12 weeks, then visits at 16, 20, 24, 28, 30, 32, 34, 36 then weekly until baby is born.
Fee for antenatal care:
The full fee for antenatal care is £1200 plus travel expenses at 30p per mile after the first 20 miles of a round trip. This fee is for approximately 10-12 antenatal visits and includes all birth preparation (see birth preparation section) plus on-call availability throughout the antenatal period between 8am-8pm every day. I’m available to be contacted in any way that suits the client including phone, text, email, Whatsapp (this is very popular) and Facebook messenger. The fee for antenatal care is usually split into three payments as follows: Deposit at booking £600, followed by a further payments of £300 at 28 and 36 weeks gestation. (If you book the full IM package then all antenatal care is included at no extra cost.)
