    Hi there I am new on here. I am due 15th June and am having my baby at Forth park. Don't know what to expect really. Am booked into midwife led unit but they are thinking of changing that as I may want an epidural. Have you had a baby there?

    yes they said the same to me. I was at midwife yesterday and she told me you can't have an epidural in the midwife led unit, which is different to what they told us at the antenatal class - I am confused! Anyway my midwife said I may have to be booked in to the hospital bit instead. This is my first too. I don't know what I am having, but am convinced it is a boy.
    July 1st isn't long either. Hope all goes well for you xx

    I was a bit annoyed cos i really wanted to go have a nosey!! hehe
    My MW told me the 2 units are joined so if you need an epidural they will wheel you over the the doctor lead part?
    We having a girl, so long as the scans were right?! lol

    Well that sounds better than going straight to the Doctor led bit. I hope that is what they'll let me do.
    I live near Leven. I am from Wales originally though and I work in Edinburgh so know nobody in fife! Where abouts are you?
