What Does the ADHB High Risk Midwifery Team Do?
We are a team of midwives who have expertise in caring for women who require additional attention during pregnancy due to medical conditions, past and present pregnancy complications, or fetal abnormalities.
We provide on-going midwifery information and support as your pregnancy progresses. We are available to answer your concerns or see you during the week outside of clinic times if required.
We work together in a multidisciplinary team to provide care for women with complex pregnancies. The other members of our team include obstetricians, physicians, dietitians, physiotherapists and social workers. We have regular meetings to review your care.
How Do You Get Referred to the ADHB High Risk Midwifery Team?
Your doctor or lead maternity carer (LMC) can refer you to our service. Once you are referred, our team will review the information we receive and either communicate with your LMC or contact you directly to arrange a clinic appointment.
