When did you decide where to have your baby?

Hello everyone,

I'm 24 weeks and there has been no mention yet of where I'm going to have my baby. Is this normal / typical?

I'm not due an appointment for another 3 weeks and I wondered when this was all discussed.

Whilst I've got a great midwife now, my previous one was awful (I refused to see her anymore) and I'm wondering if this has got lost in the transfer.

I decided at 38 weeks I was having a home birth. But before that I was asked in my first MW appointment and it was written on my notes. If it isn't there then I would bring it up at your next appointment.

usually discussed at booking (8 weeks) and finalised at 36 weeks. I expect your midwife assumes you are going somewhere in particular already - talk to her at the next appointment

Hello Katy

I had to be 'pencilled' in for somewhere at my booking in appointment so that my scans could be arranged but have been told I can change up until 28 weeks - although this might be a bit sooner than usual (or not - not sure) as one of the options is a home birth.

I have one DD but am new to this area so don't know what's available - MW suggested I just contact the two units which are available to me and ask for a tour of the maternity wards - would suggest you maybe give her a call and have a look at what's available before you see her so you can raise any questions that you have then.

Hope that helps a bit!
