As soon as you find out you are pregnant you have the option to book your maternity care directly with Lancashire teaching Hospitals instead of seeing your GP; we encourage you to do this as soon as possible so you can see your midwife and have your early screening tests.

When you submit the form our booking team will arrange your first booking appointment and also notify your GP of your pregnancy. Your first booking appointment will be sent to you via the email address you provide.

It is now routine practice for women to be seen on their own for the first 10 minutes of their appointment

Your booking appointment will between 9-11 weeks of pregnancy.

If you do not receive an appointment within three weeks then please call us on 01772 524726
