    at my 6wk check they mainly checked callum over and discussed contraception with me, asked about my bleeding and how my stitches were healing.

    hun it is nothing to worry about. they don't go near your privates unless you indicated a problem there. it is acually more the baby they are interested in.....

    ali got fully examined and his weight taken etc.
    i got my weight taken and my blood pressure checked. they doctor also asked how i was coping etc.

    also they discuss contraception..

    hope this helps

    good luck

    Christine

    I have mine on Tuesday:hissy:
    I am due a smear so I have to get it then..... Need to phone HV to see if it's a baby check too, cos the appointment they sent me just had my name on it.

    Back in the old days when i had my 1st daughter!! (13 years ago) Everyone was given an internal examination, weight checked, BP, general health check really.
    I was so glad when my HV said I wouldn't be needing an internal, but then she said about the smear :hissy:

    I think they only check your bits if you think there is an issue there. They didn't even check my csection scar at mine (although they had already treated it for infection a few weeks previously) and they didn't even try and force some contraception down my throat either! All about baby! I actually went to drs today to ask some questions that I wanted to ask at my check but didn't feel able to (different dr)

    Well I survived and haven't been arrested for punching a doctor! :o)

    All went fine... just ask about my labour (stitches, c section, episo...) and then asked if i had any concerns about my body (at this stage I asked for miracle cream to vammmoossh stretchies... no such thing unfortunately) and then asked if i had any questions about baby..... ask questions around PND then I was Frrrreeeeeeeeeeee to leave... oh and contraception to which I smiled cos I have no partner !! lol xxx
