Maternity Service lets mothers-to-be ask questions 7 days a week

Through the Basildon Hospital’s Maternity Direct+ service, mums, mums-to-be and their families can ask non-urgent questions about their pregnancy 7 days a week via social media.

A team of experienced NHS Midwives are on hand to reply to any non-urgent questions or concerns between 7am-9pm, 7 days a week; just message the Maternity Direct+ Facebook page.

The service provides supportive information that you know you can trust to improve the whole maternity journey. In addition, the midwives also offer a “Call You Back” service. All you need to do is leave your number via your Facebook message and a midwife will call you back (usually within an hour).

The midwives are also here for pre-pregnancy questions and concerns too. If you are planning on having a baby, just contact the Maternity Direct+ team. For more information about the service, Visit the Basildon Hospital website
