Early Pregnancy Unit

The Early Pregnancy Unit (EPU) is a dedicated service for women between 6 and 14 weeks pregnant who are experiencing some bleeding and have minimal pain.

The Early Pregnancy Unit (EPU) is a dedicated service for women between 6 and 14 weeks pregnant who are experiencing some bleeding and have minimal pain.

This can be an anxious time especially if you have had a miscarriage in the past. That is why at the Women's and Children's hospital, the EPU midwives have a special interest and understanding of the emotional and clinical processes associated with early pregnancy problems. In most cases reassurance can be given by performing an ultrasound at your appointment. However, sometimes it is too early to see the pregnancy and further tests may be recommended. This may include a blood test and/or a formal ultrasound by one of our specialised sonographers.
