Maternity Booking & Maternity Notes

Visit the main Maternity page

Congratulations on your pregnancy. The choice is yours: home birth, Penrith Birth Centre, West Cumberland Hospital or the Cumberland Infirmary. We are here to support you on your pregnancy journey. Whether you have already made your booking appointment with your GP practice, or whether you still require a booking appointment with the midwife, we would like you to quickly send over some details. This allows the midwives in your area to give you access to the new Maternity Notes App and book in your first appointment if not already booked.

Once the midwife has received your online referral, they will set you up with access to your maternity notes through the app/website and email you with further instructions on how to register with your email address and password.

The app will help you to keep track of appointments, track your pregnancy journey, see your antenatal and postnatal information and upload pictures of you, your bump and your baby to document your journey. Using the app means you will no longer need to carry around handheld paper notes, all your pregnancy information will be available on your phone with the tap of a few buttons!
