Meet your Community Teams

Maple Team:

Team Leader: Sarah Roberts


The Surgeries that we cover include:- Hunstanton, Great Massingham, Heacham, St. Augustines, St James, Fairstead, Dersingham, Grimston, Hunstanton, Wells, North Wootton, Burnham Market.

We provide our Ante-Natal Care at our surgeries, alongside giving our ladies the opportunity of returning back for post natal appointments to keep continuity of carer. There is a programme for Pathway to Parenting that women can attend, these are usually held in our Childrens Centre. Pathway to Parenting is a free, fun and interactive four week programme, covering labour, delivery, baby care and the role of the professionals you will meet along the way. Women are offered Breast feeding workshops, these offer valuable insight as to  the benefits of breastfeeding and offers practical advice and support. We offer Physiotherapy classes to teach exercises to help with pelvic floor and postitions in labour. We also offer hypnobirthing courses run by midwives, however, these come with a cost to the woman. We have recently started our Post Dates Clinics, so that women have the opportunity of having reflexology and acupressure to hopefully reduce their chances of induction.

After baby is born, we will visit families once at home and then will invite you to one of our postnatal clinics. These are held either at the hospital or at St Augustine’s healthy living centre or you may be able to see your antenatal midwife at your surgery.
