I think I am pregnant

Confirm your pregnancy by carrying out a pregnancy test which can be purchased at many local supermarkets and chemists. You can carry out a pregnancy test from the first day of a missed period. Tests that are done earlier than this may not be accurate.

If the test is positive, this means you are pregnant. All pregnancy tests, when carried out correctly and at the right time, are reliable. This includes tests that you buy from the pharmacy or supermarket to do yourself. If you don't have regular periods, and the test is negative, you should repeat the test at least three weeks (21 days) from the last time that you had unprotected sex.

If the result is positive and you wish to continue with the pregnancy you should contact the Midwife Service at Cossham Hospital on 0117 414 6743 to arrange a booking appointment with one of our midwives.  Usually your booking appointment would be when you are between 8-11 weeks pregnant.  Alternatively you can book through the NBT maternity website www.nbt.nhs.uk/antenatalbooking or email bookings.midwifery@nbt.nhs.uk

The Midwife team work with the doctors to provide care and advice to all pregnant women. They are available to give advice on your options for antenatal care, where you can give birth (including at home) and how best to look after yourself and your partner when trying for a baby and during pregnancy.  Our midwifery service is provided by North Bristol NHS Trust and is based at Cossham Hospital.  You may also be seen at one of the community clinics provided at Fishponds Primary Care Centre.

The midwives run antenatal clinics, birth preparation classes, and a home birth support group with other local midwives. 

If you do not wish to continue with your pregnancy please book an appointment to see one of the doctors who can then guide you through the options that are available for you.
