Midwifery Services on the Wirral
At One to One we believe that every woman should have a midwife who can provide continuity of care throughout pregnancy, birth and up to 6 weeks postnatal.
Our midwives work as part of a small team of 4 to 6 midwives based in the community who liaise closely with all other NHS services to ensure you get the care you and your baby need.
Our midwives are available 7 days a week from 8am to 8pm for routine appointments and visits - in a community setting local to you or at home, and there will always be a midwife on 24 hour call for emergencies.

At One to One, we want to ensure that your pregnancy, birth and post-natal experience is satisfying and empowering. So, to help you get the most out of this special journey, we are holding coffee mornings every Monday at our Pregnancy Advice Centre for mums in the local area. There's so many ways to socialise, learn, and enjoy a healthy, happy pregnancy. These coffee mornings are a great way to meet other mums (and dads are welcome too!) in a similar situation to you. Maybe you're new to the local area and don't have a support network close by. Our team of MaMAs and midwives will be on hand during every coffee morning to give you any additional advice and support you may need.
Would you like to learn more about your pregnancy care and meet other Mum's to Be? Our new Pregnancy Centering Group aims to bring women together to discuss their pregnancy, empower them to take the lead in their maternity care whilst building communities of mothers for friendship and support. If you are between 15-18 weeks pregnant and would like to join the group, please come along to St James' Children's centre on 14th March 2018 from 10am-12am. For our first session will have a midwife on hand and a taster yoga session from Movement and Bloom.The session is open and free for all women regardless of their care provider and refreshments will be provided. .
It’s a great opportunity for current One to One service users from the area to meet the entire Wirral team of MaMAs and midwives. There will be an opportunity to speak to past service users, set-up of a birth pool, a hypnobirthing mini session and of course refreshments! The ‘Meet the Midwife’ sessions are a great way to meet other mums (and dads are welcome too!) in a similar situation to you. Maybe you're new to the local area and don't have a support network close by and want to learn more about the services available to you.
