    When do you get your baby notes to carry around with you?

    I've already booked in with my midwife, but she didn't give me them then as at the time we had planned to have baby under a different health board, that has all changed now and I am back at midwife on Weds for bloods. Will i get them then?

    i have my maternity notes, i got them at my booking in appointment, but i don't carry them round with me, was never told i needed to! i wonder if they didn't give them to you as they probably vary from one place to another? i am only guessing tho

    I got a pull out slip from my notes at my booking in appt, but didnt receive my full folder of notes (green folder) until my 20wk scan as this is the normal practice in my area. I think everywhere differs and theres no set rule.

    Ask your mw at the next appointment, they should be able to give you a guide as to when you'll get them

    You really have to carry notes around with you everywhere you go? Why is that?

    Hi all, thanks for the replies.

    I know you don't physically carry them with you everywhere, just when you have appointments/scans etc. Am hoping to get mine tomorrow when I get my bloods done. At my last appointment she filled in the notes, which were in a clear folder and because I was saying I wanted to have the baby in a different healthboard she said she would pass them to them first. Obviously this has now changed so hoping to get them tomorrow.

    I just want to have them with me at home.
