Self-Referring to Maternity Services

To start your pregnancy journey you should self-refer to maternity services: Meet Your Midwife - NHSGGC

  • Complete the online referral form 
  • Or call the Maternity Booking Line on 0141 347 8422

Once you have completed the booking form, you will be given an appointment with a midwife for around 8-10 weeks into your pregnancy. Your appointment will be sent to you in the post within 7-10 days.

This letter will include a guide to completing your pre-booking information and information on how to access your BadgerNotes. This is your personal digital maternity record.

As far as possible, we will offer appointments close to your postcode of residence and local hospital.

There will be some exceptions, for example if the GP thinks that you need to be seen very early or an obstetrician should see you first. A request will go to your GP with details asking for medical history before the appointment. We may call if there are any differences from our national record system. Please ensure you give us your current address and telephone number.

If you are unable to access the online service, once you have called the Maternity Booking line, you will be sent out a letter containing your booking appointment details and information on how to access BadgerNotes.

The first two trimesters following conception are critical. This is when the baby is most vulnerable to damage caused by:

  • Tobacco
  • Drugs and alcohol
  • Maternal stress
  • Poor nutrition.
