Community Care

The St George’s community midwives cover all of the Wandsworth area and selected sections of Merton. All women who live in Wandsworth have contact with a midwife at home within 24hrs of transfer. Community midwives provide continuation of care following the birth of the baby; in the home or in a community postnatal clinic setting. The community midwives will see mum and baby up to the tenth day following birth, however contact may be extended if mother or baby needs further help or midwifery care.

Community midwives are the ‘all rounders’ providing maternity care in various setting; they provide antenatal care, homebirths and postnatal care. The midwives have strong network links with local GPs, health visitors and children centres.

The aim of the community midwives is to provide care to mother and baby based on their individual needs to assist with the transition to parenthood.
