    Teenage Pregnancy Service

    Ms Debbie Browne and Dr Nikita Deegan

    The Teenage Pregnancy Service was established in 2005 and is run by Dr Nikita Deegan (Consultant Obstetrician and Gynaecologist) and Ms Debbie Browne (Clinical Midwife Specialist), alongside a dedicated social worker. The service provides holistic, multi-disciplinary antenatal and postnatal care for those up to the age of 19.
    We also offer care to some vulnerable young adults over the age of 19 (such as those with additional medical or social needs) who may benefit from the continuity of care of a dedicated obstetrician, midwife, and other supports that are available within our service. In addition to weekly antenatal clinics, we run a monthly postnatal clinic, in which we provide contraceptive advice and long acting reversible contraception, if chosen.
