We know that this may be a worrying time for you, but we want to reassure you that your local maternity services are still here for you during this pandemic and doing everything they can to ensure the safety of you and your family.

Please make sure you continue to attend your scheduled routine antenatal appointments to receive the care you need throughout your pregnancy. Being seen for any urgent concerns is as important as ever. 

Covid-19 statistics and research continue to be gathered. The Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (RCOG) is providing evidence-based, up to date information, reviewed regularly.

You can increase your safety by taking extra care with regular hand washing and keeping at least two metres away from those not in your household.

If you have any concerns or worries about your pregnancy speak to your midwife or maternity unit. More information about when to ask for help can be found on our Do I need urgent help page
