Hi everyone, just a quick one. I had my first midwife appoinment the other day and due to being an IVF patient we are considered medium-high risk and therefore are consultant led.
We will still see a midwife but our care will be handled by the hospital as primary. Also found out that we get 3 extra growth scans at 28,32 and 36 as there is proof that IVF babies don't grow as well?
Has anyone else been told this?
Either during IVF or after their BFP?
I am not worried as any additional care is a bonus but I was always told that once we had our 7 week scan and all was fine we would be discharged to the midwife just like a "normal" preganancy? I had wanted to give birth in birthing centre, which is very relaxed and midwife led but have been told that is out of the question also. Just a lot to take it!
Any advice welcome x
