If you know you are pregnant, we would love to hear from you to book your first appointment with a midwife, which is known as your 'booking appointment'.
During this appointment you will meet one of our friendly midwives for the first time, and find out more about the exciting journey ahead.
It's quick and easy for you to make your first appointment, either by completing our online form or calling us on 020 8887 3055. You don't need to see your GP before getting in touch with us either, and we welcome women from right across Middlesex and London.
You can also download our maternity brochure and browse this site to find out more about us, or why not join us on a tour of our facilities?
BOOK YOUR FIRST MATERNITY APPOINTMENT
The quickest and easiest way to book your first appointment is to use our online form.
If you would prefer to make arrangements over the phone, please call us on 020 8887 3055 instead.
VIA YOUR GP
You do not need to visit your GP before making an appointment with us, but your GP can refer you to us if it's most convenient for you. Please just tell your GP when you speak to them that you would like to give birth with the team at North Middlesex Maternity, and they will take care of the rest.
To support families who may have limited English language skills we offer telephone interpreting service called thebigword. There are 56 languages available. To book this service, please ensure you specify this when booking your first appointment.
You can also access information about breastfeeding and bottle feeding in a number of different languages on the Unicef website.
TAKE A TOUR OF OUR MATERNITY FACILITIES
We run tours of the new facilities at North Middlesex University Hospital every first and third Friday of the month at 6pm so that you can come and see our new, purpose-built maternity department for yourself.
These tours are run by our midwives, and it is also a great opportunity to ask them any questions you might have.
You can book a place on the tour quickly and easily by calling 020 8887 4238 (Maternity Direct).
INFORMATION ABOUT FUTURE APPOINTMENTS
