Graphic that says 'Registering your pregnancy'

Found out you’re pregnant?

As soon as you find out you are pregnant you are able to book for maternity care directly with Northumbria Healthcare Maternity Services instead of contacting your GP. We recommend that you do this as soon as possible so that we can arrange your 1st booking appointment for between 8 – 10 weeks. This also helps us offer screening tests for you and your baby at the correct stage in your pregnancy.

Once you have confirmed your pregnancy and you are more than six weeks pregnant, please follow the simple steps below to register with the service:

Step 1 - Get your NHS number

Ensure you have your NHS number before filling in the form. If you don’t know yours, click here to get it

Step 2 - Check you dates

It is important to know the first date of your last menstrual period to ensure you have your booking appointment in time for important screening tests. If you are unsure, please provide a date as close to that as possible.

STEP 3 - Complete the registration form below

Once you have submitted the registration form, a member of our community midwifery team will contact you by telephone to arrange your booking appointment. They will also give you access to your electronic hand-held records called Badgernotes.

Women who do not have internet access will be able to contact the service by phone to register for their pregnancy care.
