Community Midwives

Antenatal and postnatal care is shared between the midwives and the doctors all of whom are on the East Sussex Health Authority approved list for maternity services. Antenatal clinics are once a week at the surgery. For those electing to deliver in Brighton, hospital antenatal clinic visits are only necessary if there is a specific problem to discuss with the obstetrician so all the routine checks are performed at the surgery.
