The maximum number of different midwives you're likely to see for antenatal appointments is 3 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 be looked after by different midwives for antenatal care, during labour and for postnatal care. If you live out of the hospital catchment area and book to delivery at Ormskirk, you will be looked after by midwives in your local area for your antenatal and postnatal care and come to the hospital for consultant care if required and when you're in labour. You can see midwives from this unit for antenatal and postnatal care as well as during labour if you come to the unit for your appointments or you can also have the option of our community midwives visiting you at home
