I've Just found out that I am pregnant? What do I do next?
If you are happy to continue with your pregnancy your first step should be to contact your midwife team. Two midwife teams provide services to patients registered at Southville Surgery, Granby House and Knowle, the team that will look after you is determined by your address. The majority of our patients are cared for by the Granby House team.
Granby House Team 0117 966 4443
Granby House, 77 West Street, Bedminster.
Knowle Team 0117 953 6600
St. John's Lane Health Centre, on the corner of St. John's Lane and Wedmore Vale.
Contact the Community Midwifery Office on 0117 342 5241 if you are unsure which team covers your address.
Please be aware, you do not need to have a pregnancy test at the surgery to confirm your pregnancy and you do not need to see a GP unless you have a pre-existing heath condition or you are on medication. The midwife team will arrange your care, scans and tests at your booking appointment.
Please do contact the surgery if you have pain or bleeding in early pregnancy and we can arrange an assessment and referral to the Early Pregnancy Clinic at St. Michael's Hospital.
If you are unsure if you wish to continue with a pregnancy please contact the surgery and an appointment can be arranged to discuss your options. Patients also have the options of contacting the Pregnancy Advisory Service directly on 0117 927 6362.
