Self referral to midwife?


Hi girls just some advice really x

I recently moved to a new area (colchester)and my gp office doesnt have a midwife so had to self refer (by email) to the hospital midwife. Does anyone know how long it might take to hear back x thx :-)

Normally self referals will go to a systerm and when you get to about 8 weeks they normally send out two letters one with a date for booking in around 9-11 weeks and one for scan for a date after bookings done xx

In my area you self refer and a midwife calls you within a week to book in your first appointment. Our midwives are within children’s centres though, not at the hospital. I had to pop into the centre as well to pick up my notes pack to start to fill in before my booking appointment

Iíve had to book in with my midwife for tomorrow for her to book me in and book my scan.
The receptionist asked me the silliest question..... who told you that you was pregnant?! WHATTTTT
