What happens during antenatal care?

Antenatal care takes place across at least 8 spaced clinic visits, finishing close to your due date.

During your first antenatal care session, you’ll have a pregnancy test to confirm that you are pregnant, and we’ll estimate your expected date of delivery.

We will discuss your medical history and you’ll have a clinical examination to assess your general health and examine your pregnancy. This will help us to determine whether your pregnancy might be high risk or not, and ensure we can work with you to develop a suitable birth plan.

A number of tests and immunizations will be done, such as STI and HIV screening, blood tests and preventative treatment for malaria. You can rest assured that any care you receive will be tailored to suit your needs.

We’ll also give you information to help you prepare for birth and beyond. You will receive information about:

  • Delivery in a healthcare facility
  • Healthy behaviours
  • Newborn care
  • Breastfeeding
  • Postnatal care
  • Planning for child spacing

What happens during postnatal care?

During postnatal care, the focus is on routine assessments that will help identify and treat any issues for both mother and baby.

This can include:

  • Assessments for bleeding and anaemia
  • Monitoring and treating infection
  • Identifying and managing postnatal depression
  • Support for breastfeeding
  • Support with nutrition
  • Counselling on birth spacing
  • Temperature and weight checks for baby
  • Vaccinations
  • Referring babies with special needs for further care where necessary
