Speak to a Midwife
If you would like to speak to a midwife you can do this in a number of ways.
Non-urgent enquires - Ask a Question about your Pregnancy
Pregnancy is a special time for you and your family and understandably you may have many questions about your care. Your midwife is a great source of advice, so try and make a list of questions to ask at each of your appointments.
Sometimes you may forget what you wanted to ask but do not worry. You can send your non-urgent question to Edie, our e-Midwife by emailing LG.email@example.com
You can expect a response to your query within 48 hours.
Edie is an experienced practicing Midwife at Lewisham and Greenwich NHS Trust. She now has a Facebook page and can be also be followed on Twitter:

Midwives in Mothercare
A drop-in clinic for new and expectant mothers is now being held in Mothercare, Bexleyheath.
The service is provided by the Trust and is free of charge to all pregnant women and new mothers with babies 1-28 days old.
Every Thursday, the drop-in session will be held in the mothers’ feeding room of the store. Local midwives will be there to provide check-ups and offer baby care and health advice. The midwives will also be happy to help with any feeding issues and generally answer any questions that you may have.
It is also a great way to meet other new or expectant mums, and have your questions answered in a calm, supportive environment.
If you feel this service may be useful to you, just drop by on Thursday anytime from 11am-2pm.
Alternatively, you can call 0208 3022678 (Ext 4950) to speak to a local midwife and book an appointment.
