Midwife Consultation



One of the aims of the Maternity Unit of the HPA Health Group is to provide a healthy pregnancy and a consequent positive outcome in the delivery and postpartum period.

Monitoring by experienced health professionals is extremely important. This period of change with many questions, doubts, fears and a huge desire that everything goes as well as possible for the new family member.

All pregnant women / pregnant couples should consult a specialist nurse, as a complement to an Obstetrician’s monitoring.

This appointment should be scheduled during the 1st Trimester of pregnancy so the future mother is monitored from the beginning, ensuring regular monitoring by a qualified professional throughout pregnancy.  Appointments are scheduled regularly during pregnancy including during the first 28 days after the birth of the baby.

This consultation also enables the future mother to familiarise herself with the maternity and the staff
