My next midwife's appointment is the day before my due date. Do you think they are likely to give me a sweep at this appointment? I have suffered horribly with SPD and am on crutches. Baby is giving me a lot of BH and false alarms so I think we're both ready.
A sweep worked to get me going with DS1 so I really want to try one again as soon as they'll let me but I'm not sure if they'll do it unless I'm over my due date.
I wondered this too as in my area they offer sweeps from your due date and my mw appt next week will be the day before I'm due.
The midwife I saw last week said they wouldn't but I could go for an appt the day after (my due date) just for the sweep. I didn't have a problem with this and guess they have to follow the rules however it did seem a bit odd to me to quibble over 1 day.
It's worth asking though! Just wanted to warn you though as I thought a couple of days wouldn't be a problem and was really disappointed when I got an outright "no". Not policy apparently. And this was after I'd snivelled at them for the appointment about not sleeping/painful bh/hip pain. They even agreed I was probably in a long latent labour, but wouldn't do it!
Special circumstances for you with vbac and twins.
It seems pretty hit and miss whether they will agree, I asked about sweeps from 38 weeks as I'm keen to avoid induction (first baby, normal pregnancy, family history of 39 weekers) and my midwife friend suggested it was a good proactive way of showing you were serious about avoiding induction but got a flat no!
