Frequently Asked Questions
What is Continuity of Care?
From the beginning to the end you will have one assigned Lead Midwife who works within our small team who will provide individualised care to you and your family.
Will I know the midwife who is there at the birth of my baby?
Between your Lead Midwife and the Avebury team we cover births 24/7. By meeting the whole team there is a high chance that you will know the Midwife who attends the birth of your baby. On very rare occasions there may be more than one person from the Avebury Team in labour at the same time. The Avebury Team will attempt to be present however, this is not always possible. In these cases care will be provided by midwives from the Labour Ward.
How will I meet all of the team?
We host monthly antenatal classes which give you the opportunity to meet the team which consists of seven midwives and a Maternity Support Worker. We encourage your attendance at these events.
How does this affect me?
Appointments can be flexible and where possible can be arranged on days and times to suit the needs of you and your family. We run clinics at both GP surgeries and may ask you to attend either of them for your appointments.
What will happen if I move out of the area?
Unfortunately, if you leave the Milton Keynes area the Avebury Team will no longer be able to provide your care. However, if you change address but stay within Milton Keynes the Avebury Team will continue to provide your care.
