Midwife

Please self-refer to the midwife when you have a positive home pregnancy test. You do not need to speak to a doctor first.

Phone our midwife Emma Legg on 0121 426 2743 between 9-10 am or 4-5 pm Monday to Friday. If the call goes to voicemail, please leave your name and number and she will call you back by the following Tuesday. If you can have your NHS number handy that would help. You can find this if you register for the BSOL app.

Your appointment will take place at Harborne Medical at around 10 weeks of pregnancy. The midwife will arrange all necessary scans, tests and further appointments.

Please ensure you take folic acid and vitamin D.  These are also advised if you are trying to get pregnant as folic acid is important in the first 12 weeks of pregnancy.  There is good diet, exercise, smoking and alcohol advice on NHS Choices.
