The benefits of booking early for antenatal care

nhs-baby-imageNHS Health Scotland are currently sharing information online including a short film, which promotes the benefits of booking early for antenatal care with a midwife.

It’s important that the messages reach women as early as possible, before they are pregnant or contemplating pregnancy.

At just under 5 minutes the short film explains:

  • the benefits of accessing antenatal services within 12 weeks of gestation
  • how to book an appointment
  • the information about what to expect at the first midwife appointment

We’ve added the link to CALA’s Parents Zone but you can also watch the video (below).
