I got a letter today to say I have to go to the hospital next week for an appointment with my obstetrician to get an anaesthetic review.
Is this the norm?
I told midwife I might want an epidural so not sure if its cause of that or whether its because I also have scoliosis and they need to check if an epidural will be feasable.
They phoned today to tell me they got the time wrong and I did ask the girl but she was a bit slow on the uptake so I didnt continue the conversation for very long or press her for an answer. (When I asked her what it was for her response was "well, you're pregnant aint ya??!)
Huh. I've not had anything like this, but I did say I wanted to go to the midwife-led unit at the hospital. Actually I wouldn't mind meeting an anaesthetist beforehand, in case I do want to transfer to the main labour ward for an epidural.... maybe I should ask my midwife.
I'm having one cos I broke my back coming up to 4 years ago and it's still causes me a lot of problems. Think it's just to see that if u did want an epidural, would it be feasible. Better finding out earlier than on the day! x
