Congratulations and Welcome to Musgrove Park Hospital Maternity Self Referral

Maternity Self Referral

Please tell us a bit more about yourself by completing the following form. The form asks questions about yourself and your medical history.  Please answer as fully as possible, as this will ensure that you receive the most appropriate care.

If you are currently taking any regular medications we recommend making an appointment with your GP as soon as possible following a positive pregnancy test to review these.

We also recommend taking a daily dose of Folic Acid 400 micrograms ideally at least 3 months before pregnancy and  a dose of vitamin D 10 micrograms. If you wish to take these as part of a pregnancy multi vitamin tablet make sure they don't contain vitamin A (or retinol). These can be bought at any supermarket or pharmacy. Some women may require a higher dose of folic acid 5mg this can only be prescribed by a GP. For more information regarding this please view both links below
