Community

Community midwives work in small teams and strive to provide continuity of care. Their contact number will be written on the front of your handheld pregnancy notes. Your GP may also be involved in your antenatal care.

If you are booked under the care of a consultant obstetrician (a doctor who specialises in pregnancy), you will attend the antenatal clinic at Russells Hall Hospital for some of your appointments. However, your midwife and/or GP will still be involved in your care. You will be actively involved in any decisions about your care and if you have any concerns regarding these decisions you should discuss these with your midwife or consultant.

The lead community midwives are:
Dudley North and Central: Adele Cox
Kingswinford and Brierley Hill: Rachel Lamb
Stourbridge: Sukhie Watts
Halesowen: Indi Seehra
