Your First Appointment
Generally you will have your first midwifery appointment at 8-10 weeks pregnant. At this visit she will explain how she will look after you and what early blood tests and scans are available as part of early pregnancy screening. She will then book you in for your first appointment with your specialist.
You’ll be in regular contact with both midwife and obstetrician during your pregnancy. Anything of a day-to-day nature, your midwife will support you with, and your obstetrician will be there as back-up and always up to speed with what is happening.
