UK mum's- mw and scans?


Do we still have a 12 week scan on the nhs in England?
Because I went to book in with my midwife today and the receptionist at the doctors surgery said now the midwife doesn't see anyone until 12 weeks. So I was wondering when I would have an ultrasound?

Thanks ❤

think itís 12-14 weeks for your first scan and 18-21 for second .

Not seeing a midwife until 12 weeks doesnít seem right to me I may be wrong! Iíve seen a midwife 6-8 weeks with both mine .

We have to self refer to our local hospital and they send out scans / midwife appointments . Maybe you could do this if possible ? X

Thank you for your reply. That's what I though however wondered if they had changed things with cutbacks?
I'll wait to see if I hear from the midwife next week otherwise I'll see if I can book my scan direct with the hospital x

I had my midwife apt at 8 and 9 weeks (booking in took so long) where we booked the 12wk scan. I thought that was a long time so I feel your pain. I had a private scan at 8wk due to being impatient x

I was able to refer myself to the midwife around 8/9 weeks but thatís because I got told off for doing it at 5 weeks with my first (I had no clue.. it was my first)
She then gave me my scan letter when she came round for my booking.

I did have a scan at 7 weeks at the early pregnancy unit because my last baby was ectopic and I lost my left tube.
Yes perhaps the area although I though the nhs would have the same guidelines across the country. We're in Hampshire. I'm hoping she calls this week as I put my number on the booking form x
