I've already had quite a few issues with my Drs surgery, firstly due to my history I was meant to be referred to the problem pregnancy unit. I phoned up after a week and they hadn't even sent the letter so I decided to sod it and go private as I was really worried I wasn't getting the meds I need (DH has excellent healthcare coverage). Two days ago I got a call from the NHS obstetrician saying I'd been referred to them - errm, bit late!! When I went into the surgery yesterday for my nuchal blood tests, they had me down as needing infertility tests even though when I made them check my details on file I was listed as pregnant. So the point of this post is if they've made so many cock-ups already I'm worried about my future care. Has anyone gone with an independant midwife? What are the pros and cons? I will check today that our healthcare covers it, but I'm pretty sure it does.
