There are many local services available to offer help and support before, during and after having your baby.

Working with health visitors and midwifes

Our family centres have a strong relationship with health visitors and midwifes across Hammersmith and Fulham.  For many years we have worked alongside each other to support. families as they grow and develop. There are also a range of baby clinics run by health visitors available across our centres every week.

After seeing your GP you will be allocated a midwife or midwifery clinic. Many of these clinics are in our family centres making it easy and accessible to see your midwife but will be dependent on where you choose to give birth.

Most mums choose to have their babies at Chelsea and Westminster, Queen Charlottes or St Mary’s with each of these hospitals offering a home birth option.
