Antenatal Care

As soon as you find out you are pregnant, you need to arrange to access care in pregnancy. There are two options: you can either contact your community midwife, or make an appointment with your GP:


  1. You can contact your local Community Midwifery Team. To find out who that is ring (0161) 276 6246 - Central Manchester University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust Radio Telephone Room. Your midwife will be able to complete a referral to Saint Mary's Hospital.
  2. Your GP can refer you directly to Saint Mary's Hospital or advise you to see the Community Midwife for referral to Saint Mary's Hospital.


Depending on your postcode, you will be offered a booking appointment, usually within two weeks, with either your local community midwife (employed by this Trust) or at one of Saint Mary's Antenatal Clinics, which includes clinics at Saint Mary's, Trafford General Hospital or Salford Royal Foundation Trust Hospital.
