The more you know about your pregnancy and your options, the more you are likely to feel in control. The information given here is based on The Pregnancy Book, which your midwife should give you at your first appointment.

Registering your Pregnancy
With effect from Monday 25th January 2016 the Peterborough Maternity Services will become a paperless process.
This means that you will now need to register your pregnancy online at the Peterborough and Stamford hospital portal and complete the Maternity Self-Referral Form .
You can access the Maternity Self-Referral Form on the Peterborough City Hospital website by clicking here .
The Maternity Self-Referral Form must be completed and submitted in order for your notes to be created and passed to the practice electronically; you will no longer be given a Pregnancy Pack.
Once you have submitted your form online you will then need to contact the Community Clerk at the practice who can be contacted on 01778 579010 who will arrange an appointment with one of our Midwives. This appointment can take up to one and a half hours.
Please note, that in accordance with NICE guidelines all pregnant women are advised to take Folic Acid and Vitamin D supplements which are available from Pharmacies and all major Supermarkets.
