Most pregnancies happily need care, attention and support only. The role of a midwife and obstetrician is to guide through the routine and normal parts of pregnancy, labour and postnatal care. Also importantly to recognise when intervention is required, when normal has become or is becoming abnormal.
Simon McDowell and Nick Bedford provide care for woman opting for an planned elective caesarean section. For those without an indication for an elective caesarean section they encourage and recommend a planned vaginal delivery.
Break-through bleeding - any spotting or bleeding that occurs between menstrual cycles - can be an indicator of early pregnancy. Irregular or unscheduled bleeding can also take place during early pregnancy.
How we can help
If you are planning an elective caesarean section (for example if you have had one previously) Nick and Simon are available to discuss pregnancy care. They will become the lead maternity carers (LMC). Please feel free to contact us if you would like to discuss this. You can also request an appointment online.
