The maximum number of different midwives you're likely to see for antenatal appointments is 8 and for postnatal appointments it's 5.
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 provides continuity of care for the majority of the antenatal period. Another member of the community midwifery team will review you if your named midwife is unwell or on leave. On admission to hospital, you will usually be cared for by a different team of midwives, although there is some integration of community and hospital teams so you may be seen by your named midwife. Your named community midwife will endeavour to see you again in the postnatal period when you go home. If you live outside the catchment area of the Trust and deliver in Causeway Maternity unit, the community teams within your own locality will see you antenatally and postnatally when you return home.
