Early Pregnancy

Early Pregnancy Assessment Unit

You can self refer yourself directly to Whittington Hospital's early pregnancy unit if you are experiencing any problems during your early pregnancy. The unit works seven days a week and offer a walk-in service. They work closely with A&E and the ultrasound department

The early pregnancy service cares for women experiencing problems during the first 16 weeks of their pregnancy. Experiencing problems during pregnancy can be stressful and we aim to reassure women and make sure they are safe.

They care for women with conditions including:

  • Pain and/or bleeding
  • Pelvic pain
  • Hyperemesis (severe vomiting)
  • Ectopic pregnancy
  • Miscarriage and recurrent miscarriage

The emergency walk-in service for women experiencing problems during early pregnancy is available Monday to Friday from 8am to 6pm (outside of these hours patients who need urgent care will be seen in A&E).

Women who experience problems or have concerns can walk-in and be seen by our specialist team without being referred by their GP or healthcare professional.

This is an emergency service for pregnant women and operates in a similar way to our emergency department, with women triaged on arrival. Our consultants aim to see you as quickly as possible, however during busy times you can expect to wait between three and four hours to be seen.

We usually assess and scan women on the same day, but on some occasions you may be assessed by our senior nurse or junior doctor and asked to return at another time for a scan if required.
