You're pregnant, what now?
Congratulations on your pregnancy.
It’s important you contact us as soon as you know you are pregnant, to ensure you get the best possible health support, and are able to access free prescriptions, dentistry and other support so your care is personalised to your individual needs.
Please follow the link to see what choices are available to you within Leeds and surrounding hospitals: Maternity choices within West Yorkshire and Harrogate
If you have chosen to receive your maternity care at Leeds Teaching Hospitals please create a My Pregnancy Notes account.
Once you have verified your email address complete the 'Registration Form' to the best of your ability.
Once you have submitted the registration form you will be contacted within 14 working days letting you know when your first midwifery appointment will be. We aim for your first midwifery appointment to be when you are around 8 weeks pregnant. You can also check on your My Pregnancy Notes account for your upcoming appointments.
If you have not heard from us within 14 working days or by the time you are 8 weeks pregnant please contact 0113 487 0690 who will be able to help.
If you are not registered at a GP Practice you can still access every service via the website or local children's centres can help women access the service.

How to contact a midwife for URGENT advice
If you need to speak to a midwife urgently, please call the Maternity Assessment Centre
LGI - 0113 3926731 or St James's - 0113 2065781
For all other advice
If you have a general query about any aspect of your care please contact your named community midwife. You will be given her contact details early in your pregnancy. Please allow a few days for her to respond as not all midwives work full time and they cannot respond to you whilst they are providing care for others.
You can also access information and answers to non-urgent queries on our
@Leeds Teaching Hospital E-Midwife Facebook page
