Maternity

NHS Wakefield Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) commissions comprehensive care for women in pregnancy and labour.

Smoking and pregnancy

Smoking is a leading cause of miscarriage and still birth.  More information on smoking in pregnancy and support if you want to give up can be found on the Yorkshire Smokefree website.

Breastfeeding

Support and information about breastfeeding locally.

Vaccinations 

Women who are pregnant are eligible for free flu vaccinations to protect them and their baby – contact your GP or local pharmacist for more information.

Women will also be offered a vaccination against whooping cough (also known as pertussis) towards the end of their pregnancy which gives protection to their baby after they are born before they are old enough to have their own infant vaccinations.
