Pregnancy Care Planner

Having a baby is a life-changing event that is different for every mum. It can be both exciting and bewildering, with lots of questions and many choices to make. To support you to have a healthy start for you and your baby, it is important to arrange your antenatal booking appointment by the 10th week of your pregnancy.

The more you know about your pregnancy and your options, the more you are likely to feel in control. The information given here is based on The Pregnancy Book, which your midwife should give you at your first appointment.
