Pregnancy & Birth
2020 is the International Year of the Midwife & the Nurse.
Throughout the year we plan to run a number of events to celebrate the incredible work #midwives & #nurses do within NHS Fife so be on the look out for these events and join in. #Midwives2020 #Nurses2020.
On discovering that you are pregnant, your first port of call should be your midwife. You don’t need to see your GP, simply ask the receptionist at your surgery to make you an initial appointment with the midwife.
Once you have booked with a midwife, your care may be midwife led or consultant led depending on your circumstances further along in your pregnancy. You will have choices over the birth of your baby and we will aim to fully support your choices.
