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.

Come along to our 'Meet the Midwife' day to meet the team and also to hear the birth experiences from some of our One to One service users!
These 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.
Parents to be and parents can come and meet a variety of organisations including One to One Midwives, NCT, Health Visitors and Puddleducks. There will be story time, baby bounce and crafts for under 5s with special guest Peppa Pig.
Places are limited, so please only bring up to one additional guest with you.
Please arrive on time to get the most out of the event - the event will include a number of scheduled talks on key parenting topics eg. car safety and pushchairs options.
