Riviera Midwifery Team

Areas covered


The Riviera Midwifery Team is made up of 13 Midwives and 2 Maternity Care Assistants (MCA). The team provides 24 hour midwifery care for women who live in the Torquay area.

Our aim is to provide a high standard of midwifery care, focusing on each woman’s individual needs. We are committed to building a trusting and supportive relationship with women and their families during pregnancy.

The Riviera Team Midwives provide care throughout pregnancy. We are also able to care for the majority of women during labour when birth is planned for home, Torbay Hospital and Whitelake Birth Unit. This care continues with home visits in the early days following the birth of the baby and access to telephone support until the baby is one month old.

Our Maternity Care Assistants are able to offer additional support with parenting and infant feeding.

The Midwives are usually in the office between 9am – 9.30am, Monday to Friday, if you want to speak to them direct. There is also an answerphone where you can leave non-urgent messages. Tel: 01803 654615.

In an emergency please call the Delivery Suite 01803 654631.
