    I've just a letter from a specialist midwife saying about coming to see me to arrange and support additional support though out the rest of my pregnancy ,
    Has anyone had this or having this ? I've never heard of it before ,

    What is she a specialist in? I haven't heard of this before but I assume either your personal circumstances or your medical history or your pregnancy so far have made them decide you need extra care.
    Anything extra from the health service is surely a bonus anyway? Hope it turns out to be useful for you.

    Have you been in a situation throughout your pregnancy where you might need the extra help? Have you tried calling a number on the letter or even your doctors to find this one out? :hugs:

    i would wait and see, there may be some family history that has flagged up in your notes so they are keeping a closer eye on you, i dont want this to come across as scare mongering so please dont pick up on this in a negative way the fact they are arranging some extra care for you is all good especially as i have read some posts with horrible mid wife experiences today, she should and will explain to you exactly why this has come about and take it as a good thing it may not even be applicable to you but they have to air on the side of caution because basically they would be sued for negligence if they didnt so dont worry all will become clear with your home visit, probably turn out to be nothing anyhow.:thumbup:
