Zika Virus Advice

Our midwives would like to re-assure their mums-to-be who may have concerns, following reports about the Zika virus.

Sue Wilkins, Head of Midwifery, explains: "It is understandable that some mums-to-be will have concerns about the Zika virus which has been linked to birth defects in South and Central America.

"The NHS Choices website has provided answers to some of the most commonly asked questions and we would urge anyone who has concerns to read this advice.

“If women are still unsure or have concerns then they should contact their midwife or the maternity unit.”
