Shared pregnancy care gives you the option to enjoy some of your pregnancy care with your local Wishing Well doctor. Provided your pregnancy is progressing normally, you’re not having twins, and there are no pre-existing health conditions like diabetes, your doctor liaises with the obstetrician overseeing the birth. Shared pregnancy care offers you the convenience of visiting your local doctor instead of travelling further to antenatal clinics. Many mums-to-be who share a good relationship with their GP choose Shared Pregnancy Care.Back to top

Whatever your destination, the best possible pre-travel preparation is essential to protecting your health while away. Some vaccines are compulsory, and you will have difficulty crossing borders without correct documentation. Other vaccines are highly recommended for your own health and safety. Discuss your travel plans in advance of your holiday. Your doctor will write a script for the appropriate vaccine. Chemists may need to order the vaccine. So plan ahead, vaccinate and stay healthy.
Getting healthy doesn’t mean having to overhaul your entire lifestyle. Just a couple of key behavioral tweaks can have a domino effect on your other health-related habits, with lasting benefits. Changing just two behaviors — like watching less TV and eating more fruits and veggies, can have a ripple effect that leads to a healthier lifestyle overall. Discover a younger-feeling, happier and more energetic you. Ask your Wishing Well doctor about a lifestyle check.Back to top

Conversely, some diets can affect your medications and endanger your health due to a pre-existing medical condition.
