A groundbreaking maternity app is now available to women who are booked to give birth at Basildon, Southend or Mid Essex hospitals as well as future mums-to-be.

The app, hailed as the first of its kind in this country, ofers seven-day-a-week access to secure, direct chat with registered midwifery staff and provides trusted information from them.

Pregnant mums choosing their care at one of the three Mid and South Essex hospitals will need to fill in a maternity self-referral form before they are given access to the app. You can find the form and more information here
