Community Based Midwifery Teams
On this page:
There are 9 community midwifery teams under St George’s Maternity, each covering different catchment areas – sometimes for parents booked out of area too.
Of those teams, 4 provide continuity of care which means you may also see your midwife (or a midwife from your team) in labour and/or during the postnatal period.
Where you live will determine which team of midwives you will see for your pregnancy. At your booking appointment you will be told which team you will be seen by.
The Rainbow Team Midwives are the St George’s Homebirth Team, based at Tooting Health Centre and providing some of their care from your home.
If you would like to have a home birth, please visit the dedicated homebirth page for more information or ask your midwife to refer you to the Rainbow Team.
The Willow Team are a group of midwives based at St George’s Hospital, caring for women who live in Colliers Wood and South Wimbledon. We provide continuity of carer throughout the antenatal and postnatal period, and aim for one of the team to be present with you for the birth.
Most of your care will be from our midwives, with some input from your GP.
The Willow Team can be contacted on 0208 725 4715 or via our team email address email@example.com and we can also be found on Instagram @willowteam_stgeorges.
You will have a named midwife who will see you for the majority of your appointments, and may meet some of the other members of Willow Team throughout your pregnancy journey.
