United Lincolnshire NHS Trust: Maternity Services (Boston)
- Early access to a midwife once pregnancy confirmed. Women are encouraged to access maternity services as early as possible in pregnancy, as the evidence suggests that early access to maternity services can improve outcomes for women and their babies
- Detailed risk assessment completed on all women at their first appointment with the midwife, any risks identified will trigger referral to appropriate agencies. Screening for mental, social and physical well-being of women during pregnancy via effective assessment tools, can help midwives identify vulnerable groups of women at higher risk of poor pregnancy outcomes.
