Mums-to-be in East Ren are being encouraged to call a special antenatal booking line and directly self-refer to a midwife as soon as they find out they are expecting a baby.

It means everyone who dials 0141 232 4005 can book in with a midwife without needing to see their doctor.

Accessing maternity services at an early stage enables expectant mothers to tap into health and support information on including breast feeding, stopping smoking and alcohol consumption, all of which lead to a positive outcome on the wellbeing of mum and baby.
