When you are pregnant a lead maternity carer (LMC) will work in partnership with you.

Your LMC can be a midwife, hospital team or a specialist obstetrician. You can register with an LMC as soon as you become pregnant, but you can also receive first trimester care (up until the 12th week of pregnancy) from a GP, even if they are not your LMC.

The Ministry of Health's HealthEd website provides further information about choosing a LMC.
