Our Midwifery team provides care and advice to women before, during and after pregnancy.
Antenatal clinics are held at Penryn Surgery on Wednesday and Thursday afternoons.
If you are pregnant you will initially need a “booking” appointment with the midwife. You can arrange this either by seeing a doctor or alternatively you can go to the surgery reception yourself and arrange it. At reception you will be given a pack of important information about pregnancy and your details will be passed to the midwife. The midwife will then contact you and arrange the booking appointment.
The booking appointment is usually at about 8-10 weeks of your pregnancy. The appointment takes about one and a half hours and can take place at your home or in the surgery.
The midwives can be contacted by ringing them on their direct line at Falmouth Hospital 01326 430070.
In an emergency the midwives can be contacted on 01208 251300
