Self-referral service

If you are more than six weeks pregnant you can now book your maternity care directly with Poole Hospital's maternity services by filling in a self-referral form. 

The form asks you questions about yourself, your family and your medical background.  Please answer as fully as possible, as this will enable us to ensure that you receive the most appropriate care.

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

 

For full information about your choice of where to give birth download the app at:   http://mybirthplace.org/poole/

 

For all the information you need for your pregnancy and beyond visit the Wessex Healthier Together site  http://www.what0-18.nhs.uk/ and download the app.

 

If you do not hear from us within two weeks of submitting the form, please contact 01202 442515.

 

For all other queries regarding your maternity care, you should call the community midwifery team on 01202 442692 in the first instance.
