What next?

As soon as you know you are pregnant, please get in touch with your maternity unit to book your first appointment. This is called your 'booking appointment‘ where you will meet a midwife.

Ideally you should be seen by a midwife by the time you are 10 weeks pregnant, or as early into your pregnancy as possible. You can make your first appointment quickly and easily. Many maternity units are able to accept self-referrals. You can find your local maternity unit here
