Is anyone else a teacher?

I have my first midwife appointment in a couple of weeks, and the only time I can go is during the school day. I know they have to let me go, but I don't really want school knowing this early on. Any advice?

Just say it's a hospital appointment.

I am a teacher and just said hospital appointment. I had to phone in sick on day due to bleeding in early pregnancy and although I told the head PA what was happening I specifically told her it was in confidence.

Thank you, I'll do that.
My school are lovely and very supportive, but I don't think I'm ready to tell them yet!

Yes absolutely just say hospital. If they ask to see a hospital appointment letter then just black out anything that gives it away!
