Pregnancy York

Pre-Pregnancy & Fertility

The Local Maternity and Neonatal System (LMNS) is a partnership of organisations, women and their families working together to deliver improvements in local maternity and neonatal services.

The information on their website is aimed at those who will receive the majority of their maternity care through midwifery services and obstetric consultant care through one or more of the following Hospital Trusts – York and Scarborough Teaching Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, Hull University Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust and Northern Lincolnshire and Goole NHS Foundation Trust. Some women, babies and families with special requirements may need to travel outside this area.

On this website you can find information about services local to you, general pregnancy and birth advice, and information on more specialist services including perinatal mental health services on the Every Mum Matters website and support for giving up smoking on the Bump the Habit website.
