First, can I change my mw? She didnt fill me with confidence at my booking appt as she kept saying now what is this form for and forgot some forms too. I had to call for advise as i felt v dizzy and tired and she made me feel kike an idiot. I had to chase her to get my paperwork to the hospital and she made it so unclear the consultant wasn't sure if I yad the medical condition or a previous baby. Also she missed off that a cousin had a baby with Patau syndrome. Can I change her? She works in a team and is the mw that covers my surgery and if so, how?
Ive got my NT on Tues. Will I be able to hear the heartbeat?

Hey I'm not sure how it works but at my gp you just see whoevers there on the day we don't get a choice. Maybe worth calling the team and asking to speak to the manager? Also at nt scan they will check the heartbeat but at mine they didn't listen to it, just checked the rate it was beating at. it might be different where you are though I think they've all got different ways of doing things. Good luck for tues x

Well I popped and saw my Dr tonight and she said she will ask the Partners about the MW and perhaps see if I can change MW or just be hospital lead. Fingers crossed. It was awkward discussing it but she said she understood.

At the end of the day they have a duty of care to you and if ur not happy then they need to know about it and should do something about it. Fx x

Saw my gp on friday and she was great. Said she would tralk to the partners and understood why i didnt feel confident in my MW. She called today and said she is putting in for a mw transfer for me and not detailed why on my records

LH, bet you're on pins now....3 days!
Did you get a scan pic at your NT scan? And if so did u pay? My epau scan said outside it was £5 per copy but she gave us 2 free.

Hi mrsw, bless yup, you've not had a good time with your mw from the start eh, glad you can change her as you need to feel at rest and confident with what they say, pleased for you!
At my NT scan we got pics for free but like LH said they're all different, weve been lucky and have had all scan pics free and I've had extra scans so it's been lovely. Good luck with everything xxx

Well the mw manager at the care trust called and I told her about it all. She apologised and gave me a few different options but I am opting to be birth centre lead from the hospital in the next town where they had medical bckup unlike my local hospital. It means all my appts will be with a birth centre midwife and im finally feeling happy, confident and excited,
I cant wait to see my baby tomorrow!!!!!
Thanks for listening girls xx
