Maternity care & child health

What is antenatal care?

This is the care you receive while you’re pregnant to make sure you and your baby are as well as possible.

The midwife or doctor providing your antenatal care will:

  • check the health of you and your baby
  • give you useful information to help you have a healthy pregnancy, including advice about healthy eating and exercise
  • discuss your options and choices for your care during pregnancy, labour and birth
  • answer any questions you may have
