What''s a General Practitioner (GP)?

This is the person who will usually help you organise your pregnancy care. If you do not have a GP once you think you may be pregnant or confirm that you are, you should find one to register with. However, you do not have to have a GP to get antenatal care. The GP will book the hospital for you once you have decided where you wish to go, and may also give you antenatal care himself or ensure that there is a midwife at the surgery to do so. He will come and see you and the baby after the birth and may even be involved in the delivery itself. The GP is usually a very important person involved in co-ordinating the people loking after your pregnancy and newborn baby, including midwives, obstetricians, health visitors and paediatricians
