First appointment midwife

Your first appointment with your midwife is an important one in your pregnancy. This is your chance to meet your midwife and ask any questions you may have about your pregnancy. It is important to prepare for this first appointment.

Your first appointment with the midwife is usually around 8 weeks into your pregnancy. At this first appointment, the midwife may carry out an ultrasound scan to check that your pregnancy is progressing well. The ultrasound will check whether the baby’s heart is beating, whether the baby is in the uterus and how big the baby is. There will also be time for you to ask any questions you may have, and we will explain the procedure to you.

When will I see my midwife for my antenatal check-up?

We will see you again for a follow-up appointment between the 10th and 12th week of your pregnancy. Or this may be your first appointment if you decide not to have an early ultrasound. At this appointment we will ask you about your health, your medical history, your family’s medical history and any medication you are taking. This information is essential to help us understand your situation and identify any potential risks.

Next, we will do an ultrasound to measure the length of the baby and use this to determine the estimated due date. In the first few weeks, all babies grow at the same rate, so you will be able to tell your baby’s age from his or her size. We will also take your blood pressure and may ask you to weigh yourself.

What information will we discuss?

During the first consultation, we will also discuss your wishes and expectations regarding your pregnancy and birth. It is important that you feel comfortable with the care we provide and that we can support you in making decisions that suit your personal situation and preferences.

We will also give you detailed information about prenatal screening. These are tests that you can choose to find out more about your baby’s health. You can choose the NIPT test, which is a blood test for chromosomal abnormalities. You can also choose to have a 13-week scan, which looks for physical abnormalities. Both tests are optional. Covered by your insurance.

We will also tell you about the different tests you can expect during your pregnancy. We will also give you advice on how to lead a healthy lifestyle during your pregnancy and give you tips on how to reduce any pregnancy-related problems.

Finally, we will make appointments for your antenatal and postnatal check-ups. These appointments are essential to monitor your baby’s growth and development effectively and to identify any potential problems early on.

In summary, your first appointment with your midwife is an important moment in your pregnancy. During this appointment, you will receive full information about your pregnancy and be able to ask any questions you may have. We will also help you to make decisions that suit your personal situation and preferences. We are here for you and will do everything we can to make your pregnancy and birth as smooth as possible.
