Expecting a baby
If you are pregnant it is best to start having ante-natal care as soon as possible to promote the best outcome for themselves and their baby. This will involve seeing the midwife regularly and their GP or an Obstetrician (a doctor who specializes in looking after pregnant women). In Lewisham there is a team of Midwives who offer care to younger women-they are based at Lewisham Hospital but see pregnant young women at Connexions in Lewisham. They can be contacted on 07798925340.
Lewisham Family Nurse Partnership is a pregnancy and early childhood health service for all young women who are under 20, having their first baby and living in Lewisham.
A Family Nurse will contact you early in your pregnancy and arrange to meet up with you.
You can contact the Family Nurses yourself on 0207 771 4202 or 07920190982 or email lew-pct.familyNursePartnership@nhs.net
