Pregnancy, birth & parenthood

If you think you are pregnant, you can self-refer to the Community Midwives Team at  www.esht.nhs.uk/maternity-self-referral. They will guide you through your pregnancy and birth. It is also useful to let us know too, so we can update our records and be on hand to support you if needed.

There is lots of useful information on their website East Sussex Hospitals Trust Maternity.

NHS.uk has lots of useful information about getting pregnant, being pregnant or caring for your new baby.

NHS.uk/start4life has advice and tips for pregnancy, birth, parenthood, breastfeeding support 24/7, weaning and more. It puts everything parents need to know in one place.

Antenatal classes and groups

There are a range of antenatal classes you can join from 16 weeks pregnant and beyond. For more information and to book, visit  www.esht.nhs.uk/service/maternity/your-pregnancy/antenatal-classes-and-groups/

Being Mum: online support group
