Routine Antenatal Care
As soon as you learn that you are pregnant, please ask for an appointment with a midwife. The receptionists will pass on your details to the midwife, who will contact you and arrange for you first 'booking' appointment. For this first appointment the midwife will usually visit you in your own home.
To make your appointment, either call in at Reception or telephone 0844 815 1956. Midwives prefer to see you as early in your pregnancy as is possible, ideally before eight weeks from your last period. If you have already 'booked in' with your midwife and need advice, please contact her on the number she will have given you.
If you are unable to contact her for any reason, you should telephone one of the following Rotherham Hospital numbers for advice:
- Greenoaks (Monday to Friday) Rotherham 304347
- Labour Ward: Rotherham 304491
- Ward B10: Rotherham 304348
If you are thinking about starting a family, and you would like pre-conception advice, please ask for an appointment to see a midwife. Appointments can be made through Reception in the normal way
Aquanatal Classes are a really fun way to keep fit during your pregnancy. They are held on Mondays and Wednesdays at the Rotherham Leisure Complex (near St. Anne's roundabout) between 11am and 12 midday. Booking is recommended to avoid disappointment - telephone the centre on Rotherham (01709) 722555 to reserve your place. Ask your midwife if you would like to know more about this
Parentcraft classes are provided for women from about the 28th week of pregnancy onwards. Please ask your midwife if you would like further information about these classes, which provide advice, and help you prepare for labour, delivery, breast-feeding and looking after your newborn baby.
