It is an electronic maternity healthcare record system which allows real-time recording of your maternity journey.

It means your notes will be available wherever you are, such as in hospital or at a community midwife appointment, so we can access your notes quickly – no need for paper records. It also allows you to view your maternity records online via an online portal or app (BadgerNotes).

BadgerNotes App

BadgerNotes lets you access your maternity records via the internet, either on PC, tablet devices or smart phones via an app.

The information on there is generated in real-time from your hospital-based maternity system record, using details entered by your midwife or other health professionals involved in your care.

BadgerNotes lets you personalise your information, track your pregnancy journey with private and secure diary entries and photos, plus submit your thoughts or questions and create plans for your birth that your midwife can review at your appointments.

You can also view our hospital’s full library of pregnancy leaflets via the app, so you’ll always have access to relevant information.

Your midwife/midwifery health trainer will give you all the details you need to register for your BagderNotes account once you’ve registered your pregnancy.
