I know Im being the most impatient person in the world but I wish my MW would call me to book an appointment - even if its a few weeks away. A friend of mine said that you can often feel like they are leaving you to your own devices at first and she is totally right. I feel like I've found out and thats it. Nothing.
Also, is it usual that a MW only visits your practice once a week?

I didnt meet my midwife until ten weeks. She is only at my docs once a week too. If you need advice can i ask gp? I know the impatient feeling, im due to have my baby next thursday and time is going so slowly!! X

It isn't uncommon for Midwives to only visit your surgery once per week (Our day is Friday). Again it isn't uncommon for you to have to make the appointments (typically your 'booking in' should occur between 6-10wks into term & should be with your 'community midwife' which may/may not be the same one who visits surgery, if they haven't called you by 8wks into term notify your surgery as it could be you need to phone them to arrange).

It's funny how different places work isn't it. Our is tues and weds and whilst I saw the same mw all the way through my first, and I loved her she was great, I haven't seen her this time as have a different one each time (although only been to see them 3 times so far) and i just made my booking in app myself with the receptionist for 8/9 weeks, then my mw makes my next app while I'm there with her x

It is bizarre the way different areas operate the system?!!! With my eldest I saw a different midwife every appointment whilst pregnant but then had the same community midwife visit daily once she was born, with my youngest I saw the same midwife at every appointment whilst pregnant yet had different ones visit once she was born....I now know most of the local midwife team

Still nothing from her..... Starting to get a bit hacked off. Even if she calls and books it in for 4 weeks time!
