WHAT IS STILLBIRTH

ATTENDING YOUR ANTENATAL APPOINTMENTS

During your antenatal appointments, your midwife or GP will monitor the development of your baby. They will monitor the size of your baby by using a tape measure to measure the size of your womb, and check that your baby is in the right position.

You will also be offered a series of tests to detect any illnesses or conditions, such as pre-eclampsia, that may cause complications for you or your baby. Necessary treatment can be provided promptly and efficiently.
