I'm 20 weeks pregnant and I'm under quite a few health professionals because I have bipolar and have a history of ill mental health and psychotic episodes. I don't actually know who's supposed to be helping me with what. I have a care worker under a new care team. I have a dr under a mother and baby mental health team. I have an obstetrician at the hospital and a midwife. Im on quetiapine 600mg per day and I have been perfectly stable for coming up to two years now. As far as I am aware I don't have a labour care plan but I'd like one. Who's responsible for putting it together? I've got my first appointment with the obstetrician next Wednesday. What should I be asking him? They're going to be keeping me and my baby in hospital for a few days for observations to do with possible withdrawal symptoms. Lack of sleep is a major trigger for my mental health. Would it be ok for me to ask to have a room to ourselves during our stay? Do I need to have a care plan for our stay in hospital as well?
