Self-referral is quick and easy and just takes a couple of minutes. You can also use this to refer a pregnancy on behalf of a woman.

Please select a location in order to inform the NHS of your pregnancy:

  • Warrington SPA - If you would like to self-refer to Warrington and Halton Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust then please use this page.
  • Dorset Referrals - You can refer yourself to Dorset maternity services by completing this self-referral form. If you don’t wish to have your baby at a Dorset hospital, please directly contact the hospital you wish to birth at. You may still receive some of your care from Dorset midwives. If you are considering a homebirth, please complete the self-referral form. You will then receive a booking appointment, which will happen when you’re around 8 - 12 weeks pregnant, or as soon as possible if you believe that your pregnancy is further along. There is no need to see your GP unless you have existing health problems. If you do have any existing health problems, it’s a good idea to see your GP when you find out that you’re pregnant, so that they can review any medication you’re taking and see if you need any additional care.
