What we do

The Early Pregnancy Unit is a dedicated service providing care  for women with complications in early  pregnancy  up to 16 weeks and 6 days gestation.

The most common reasons why women are referred to our EPU are:

  • Vaginal bleeding and / or central lower abdominal pain with a positive pregnancy test
  • Previous ectopic pregnancy
  • Previous molar pregnancy
  • For specialist care if a problem is detected following an ultrasound scan in another setting
