All pregnant women in Wirral have a named Community Midwife to provide individualised professional and supportive antenatal and postnatal care, regardless of the intended place of birth. Seeing the same midwife regularly, as planned, provides continuity of care and the formation of trust between mother and midwife.
Community Midwives are rotationally on-call 24 hours a day, 365 days of the year for women giving birth at home.
Community Midwifery teams liaise and work closely with the hospital-based midwives, Obstetricians, local GPs, Health Visitors, Social Workers, Physiotherapists and other allied professionals to try to ensure needs are met and families are fully supported.
Mums and Midwives shop is situated in the Pyramids Shopping Centre, Birkenhead.
The shop is open Monday – Saturday and whilst it is normally a drop-in venue, during the times of COVID-19 an appointment is necessary. We are extending the hours on a daily basis to accommodate the needs of our women.
The shop offers an appointment service for antenatal and postnatal care. The shop is run by Midwives who can give you support and reassurance throughout your pregnancy and for a month after you have had your baby as well.
