Planning a Family

We offer a range of clinics and services here at SHP to support you when planning a family, from preconception advice to postnatal care.


Antenatal care is the care and help you receive from health professionals during the course of your pregnancy. It is important you take good care of your own health and that of your unborn baby during pregnancy.

Appointments for antenatal checks will normally take place both at the GP practice and at the hospital depending on how far along in the pregnancy you are.
