Templer Midwifery Team
Teignbridge (excluding Newton Abbot)
The Templer Midwifery Team is made up of 11 midwives and a maternity care assistant (MCA) and we are based at Teignmouth Children’s Centre.
The Team provides midwifery care for women registered with GP surgeries in Moretonhampstead, Bovey Tracey, Chudleigh, Kingsteignton, Teignmouth and Dawlish area plus surrounding villages.
Antenatal and postnatal care is provided including 24 hour cover for labour care if booked with Torbay and South Devon NHS Foundation Trust.
Our aim is to provide a high standard of midwifery care, focusing on each woman’s individual needs.
As a group we are committed to building a trusting and supportive relationship with women and families during pregnancy.
During your pregnancy you will have the opportunity to meet the Templer Midwifery Team midwives through:
- Antenatal checkups at home and at your GP’s surgery (see below)
- Parentcraft Classes – book a place from 28 weeks of pregnancy
Templer Team midwives are able to care for the majority of women during labour when birth is planned for home, Newton Abbot Hospital or Torbay Hospital. This care continues with home visits and access to telephone support through the early post natal period, until the baby is four weeks old.
Should you choose to have your baby at the Royal Devon and Exeter Hospital, we will offer you the same antenatal care and continue your postnatal care at home but we would be unable to care for you in labour. This care would be provided by the hospital midwives at Exeter.
Our Maternity Care Assistant is able to offer additional visits to help with parenting and support breast feeding.
The midwives are usually in the office each morning between 9am – 9.30am for direct contact or 24 hour answerphone. Please do not leave urgent messages on this number.
In an emergency please tel: 01803 654631.
Parentcraft classes are held at Moorsedge and South Dartmoor and Teign Valley Children’s Centre.
