Hi all. Slightly concerned my first contact with midwife is a bit late? I've been told I won't hear from my midwife for my first appointment until 11/12 weeks. I'm brand new to this, so might just be unaware that this is the norm!
I've been told (by GP) I won't see anyone until 10 weeks. Sent a booking in form to the hospital about 10 days ago (I was 5 weeks at that point) and haven't heard anything back. Assuming that's normal... Also, GP said the dating scan would be at 13 weeks, not 12. Is that right? Could do with it being 12 really - we're seeing family just after that and would like to tell them!
Booking appointment was at 8 weeks both times. You don't actually really need to see anyone in that particular week, but she puts the wheels in motion for your first scan etc. Provided she can do that quickly, 11 weeks might be ok, but I would give them a call to make sure.
Depends where you live. In my area you can either choose the One to one service or go with the hospital and community midwives. One to one book you in when you have been allocated your midwife which is around a week after you refer yourself. I was booked in at 8 weeks this pregnancy. If you go with the community midwives they book you in the day that you go for your 12 week scan usually. Different trusts have different procedures.
