Health Information

Are you pregnant? 

If you are pregnant, you no longer need to ring Sure Start. Click the image opposite to self-refer your pregnancy. 

How does Badger Notes work? 

Badger Notes allows you to:

  • See a week-by-week timeline of your pregnancy.
  • Access reading recommended by your Midwife.
  • View your hospital’s full library of maternity leaflets.
  • View booked appointments and information direct from your medical record.

Additionally, as you build a personalised care plan with your Midwife, Badger Notes gives you a place to record thoughts and questions about your antenatal care, birth plan, and postnatal care for your Midwife to review with you.

For care purposes, and once they've been granted access to Badger Notes by you, healthcare professionals such as GPs will also have 24-hour access to information.
