Congratulations! What an exciting (and sometimes scary and overwhelming) time of your life!
I will welcome you with a comprehensive appointment where we get to know each other and build a health and pregnancy history for you and figure what tests or screening you want or need.
We will have discussed how this practise works, back up midwife, how and when to contact, referral pathways, that you can change LMC at any stage, your HDC rights, confidentiality, electronic records, partnership and open communication. We have also discussed frequency of antenatal appointments, general timing of screening/decision points, birthing options in Gisborne, & postnatal care.
