Book an appointment with your GP, then they will refer you to the midwives. Enjoy!

Pls report to your Gp n ask to book an appointment with the midwife. I reported to Gp when I was 5weeks pregnant n the doc OK that's it. I called the surgery yesterday cos I was concern n was told I am to book an appointment with the midwife so the midwife will call me today as am 9weeks now.

Call your go surgery and they will tell you if you can book directly with the midwife. You don't need to see a doc per se but depends on the surgery you attend. The midwife will see you for your booking at 10-12 weeks and you'll have first scan at around 12 weeks. Start your folic acid and eat healthy, avoid alcohol. Congrats!
