Community care

Community midwifery at the Rosie is organised so that midwives work in eight teams.

Each team is based in one of Cambridgeshire’s children’s centres and is made up of several community midwives and a maternity support worker.

Antenatal care

Antenatal appointments are held at your GP surgery, a children’s centre or the Rosie birth centre. If you have an uncomplicated pregnancy, most of your care will be from the community midwifery team. If you have any additional medical or pregnancy related needs, you will also be seen by the obstetric team based at the Rosie hospital.

Your community midwifery team provide lots of informal education, support and information on staying healthy, preparing for labour and birth, feeding your baby and preparing to become parents. They will also support you if you chose to have your baby at home, with each team covering an on-call rota 24 hours a day.

Postnatal care

The first appointment following the birth will be in your own home. The remainder of your postnatal care may be either at home, in some of the children’s centres, or at the weekend in a clinic at the Rosie birth centre. Please ensure that you arrange transport to these areas if you are unable to drive yourself.

We work geographically therefore if you live outside of our geographical area we will ask any home visits to be covered by a midwife from the appropriate team.

How to contact a community midwife

The telephone numbers below are linked to an answer phone. Messages will be accessed at 08:00 every morning, including weekends. Please leave clear contact details (including your GP surgery) so the midwife can call you back. If she/he is unable to reach you they will leave a message asking you to call again. 

Please do not leave urgent messages on the answer phone.
