Oxford Maternal Medicine (Silver Star)

We care for those with medical conditions which either pre-date the pregnancy, such as hypertension or epilepsy, or which come to light during the course of the pregnancy, such as pre-eclampsia.

Your midwife, GP, specialist doctor / teams will refer you to these clinics as needed.
