    This really doesnt sound right. If she is busy there must be another midwife you can see? I wlould phone up and express your concerns. If they still wont give you an appointment maybe phone the midwife unit?!

    Is this your first?

    I thought it was NHS practice to see you every month. does that mean u miss out on hearing the heart beat, and getting all the blood ect done?

    Maybe try to ring the main hospital.

    Hope they sort it out for u...as i would not be happy.
