about collecting your
FREE Acorn Pack Antenatal!
Congratulations, you're pregnant!
Now, you probably have many different questions, not least "Where should I have my baby?".
Living in Hillingdon, there are various options. The only hospital with a maternity unit in the borough is Hillingdon Hospital. But you can actually choose to go anywhere to have your baby.
If you decide to go to The Duchess of Kent Unit for Women & Newborn Babies at Hillingdon, you can self-refer and book an appointment to see a midwife.
If you want to find out the other options which are available to you, visit the NHS Choices website and see the hospitals you can book with and how you go about doing that.
The Healthy Start scheme offers "free vouchers every week which you use to buy milk, plain fresh and frozen fruit and vegetables and infant formula milk. You can also get free vitamins." For more information, to find out if you are eligible to receive the vouchers, and to apply if you are, visit Healthy Start.
If you live in the London Borough of Hillingdon, after you've seen your midwife and been given your hand-held maternity notes, you will be able to visit one of a number of Hillingdon Children's Centres to collect a free Acorn Pack Antenatal, full of information, useful items, offers and free samples. Please see here for more details about the packs themselves and what you will need to bring with you to collect one.
