maternity scan

During your pregnancy

During your pregnancy our midwives will look after you with regular checkups at home, in children’s centres, birth centres, community hospitals, your doctor’s surgery and even at Sainsbury’s (Margate only). You will be offered ultrasound scans and blood tests at specific points during your pregnancy to check your health and that of your baby.

We provide other outpatient hospital services for pregnant women, including early pregnancy assessment units, blood tests, fetal medicine units, maternity day care facilities and consultant led antenatal clinics.

Towards the end of your pregnancy, you will be offered antenatal parent education classes.
