The maximum number of different midwives you're likely to see for antenatal appointments is 3 and for postnatal appointments it's 2.
You'll see the same midwives throughout your pregnancy and after your baby is born, but different midwives when you're in labour.
You will have a named midwife who will aim to provide continuity of care in your pregnancy and following the birth. If you opt for a home birth your named midwife will strive to provide your labour care. If you live out of the hospital catchment area you will be looked after by midwives in your local area for antenatal and postnatal care. The Birth Unit midwives will provide your labour care on the Birth Unit and can often continue to provide labour care in the event that you need to transfer to the consultant unit should you or your baby require additional care and consultant input.
