Maternity Services - Online self-referral
Congratulations on your pregnancy!
If you have a positive pregnancy test and wish to have your baby under the care of Southend Hospital Maternity Services, you can contact us directly by completing the antenatal self-referral form without the need to see your GP first.
You can access our antenatal self-referral form
here: Antenatal self-referral
Once you submit your referral form you will be able to
access evidence-based health information and chat to a member of
our midwifery team about non-urgent concerns and questions via the
Maternity Direct App.
We encourage every woman to develop a personalised care plan,
with your midwife and other health professionals, which sets out
your decisions about your care, reflects your wider health needs
and is kept up to date as your pregnancy progresses.
Your Midwife will discuss this further with you once you have
referred your pregnancy.
