New maternity services digital system 

We have introduced a new digital system for parents-to-be to register their pregnancy and access their health care records. The new system called My Pregnancy Notes is a fully electronic patient record, which supports the clinical and administrative management of your complete maternity journey.

My Pregnancy Notes benefits 

  • You will be able to register for an account when you discover you are pregnant, giving a streamlined referral to our services.
  • We can share information quickly and easily between all people involved in your care, enabling the midwife to have more personalised conversations. 
  • You can record your appointments, access your pregnancy notes, and view leaflets and other information.
  • You will have greater visibility, control, and access to trusted information.
  • All information is held securely and cannot be accessed without the correct login details (like internet banking).

Using My Pregnancy Notes

You will be able to access your maternity notes and information through smart phones or other devices, improving your overall maternity experience.

  • If you are currently pregnant and having your baby with University Hospitals Plymouth, register for an account at My Pregnancy Notes selecting ‘Derriford Hospital’ as the site. 
  • If you are letting us know about a new pregnancy, register for a My Pregnancy Notes account at around 6 weeks pregnant so we can arrange your first appointment with the midwife.
  • If you have not heard from us by the time you are 8 weeks pregnant, or you believe you are already over 8 weeks pregnant, please call our community midwifery administration team on 01752 437555.
