Teenage Pregnancy Team

Teenage Pregnancy Team

In Leeds we offer an enhanced care pathway if you are under the age of 19 when you become pregnant. The team consists of Teenage Pregnancy Midwives, Maternity Support Workers and Obstetric Consultants.

We coordinate your care, minimising the number of hospital visits and providing care as close to your home as possible, providing continuity of carer during your pregnancy and afterwards.

We offer information and emotional support personalised to your individual needs and specifically for teenage pregnancy.

The midwives will see you at your own home or at a venue of your choice; we also provide postnatal support at home up until six weeks after the birth.

Over the years as a team we have developed links with community groups that give support specific to Teenagers during pregnancy including Learning Mentors in schools and financial support officers. We also offer a variety of opportunities to access Parentcraft sessions.

If you have any non-urgent concerns please contact the Teenage Pregnancy Midwives via email -

If you wish to discuss any concerns relating to your care please contact the Midwifery Team Leader or the Midwifery Matron who will aim to respond to you within 5 working days.
