Women are now able to self-refer for maternity care electronically via the East Kent Hospitals website. www.ekhuft.nhs.uk/maternity

For the best care for women and their babies, we encourage them to self-refer as soon as possible so they can see a midwife and have early screening tests.

Seeing a midwife at an early stage will ensure women are given all the information that they need right from the start to help them make the right choices. There are routine screening tests that need to be carried out by the tenth week of pregnancy, so an early appointment with a midwife will enable them to discuss these tests and plan appropriately.

The form asks questions about the women, her family and her medical background.

When they are about 10 weeks pregnant, a midwife will either call or email the women to arrange a booking appointment, which usually takes place in the 10th or 11th week of pregnancy. At this appointment she will also receive details of the 12-week scan.
