The maximum number of different midwives you're likely to see for antenatal appointments is 4 and for postnatal appointments it's 3.
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 usually see one midwife antenatally, although you may see others for antenatal classes or covering for holiday. It is also possible that you will see your named midwife when in labour and postnatally. Out of area women are usually cared for by their local named midwife during the pregnancy and postnatal period and by one of the birth centre midwives during labour.
