During your first antenatal appointment your midwife will confirm your pregnancy, assess your health and give you some information that you will need in the months ahead. A detailed medical history and family history will be taken as part of assessing your overall health. We will check your blood pressure, weight and height and you will have a urine test to see if you have a urinary tract infection (UTI). We will ensure that all the necessary blood test were done as needed, and that you go for all scans as as prescribed.
Your tummy will be measured (abdominal palpation) to check your baby's growth, and a Doppler will be used to listen to baby's heart rate.
If any abnormalities are noted you will be referred for a scan.
