Melody Allsop is the named midwife for the practice. She is based at Keynsham Clinic, Park Road in Keynsham Bristol, 0117 946 1000.
Melody runs an Antenatal clinic every Tuesday pm at the surgery, and any other time she can be contacted via Keynsham Clinic. As a team they cover all the Chew Valley, Keynsham and Saltford. They provide antenatal (during pregnancy) and postnatal (after delivery) care in the surgery, Keynsham Clinic and at home.
If delivering in hospital (St. Michaels/Southmead in Bristol, Royal United Hospital Bath, Ashcombe Unit Weston General or Paulton Birthing Unit) you will be cared for in labour by the midwives there.
As Community midwives they provide a homebirth service, with a 24 hour on-call rota, with colleagues from UHB Trust. They run, with the support of an obstetric Physiotherapist, Antenatal/Parentcraft courses. They work very closely with your GPs, Health Visitor and all the hospitals. They are happy to give pre-conceptual advice.
When first pregnant, please collect a Booking pack from the receptionists.
