Expecting a baby

Frequently asked questions

Will I meet my health visitor before the birth?

Your midwife will get in touch with your health visiting team and let them know you’re expecting a baby.

Between 28 and 36 weeks of pregnancy you will be sent a letter explaining how to access your antenatal support and visit you at home to discuss the arrival of your new baby and offer additional support. You can access our Soilhull online antenatal courses here, just enter the code TAMAR and it’s free for you and your partner. Visit Solihull antenatal course
