I will be going in for my 32 week growth scan next week though. Has anybody else had a phone appointment? My appointment a few days ago was face to face still, my MW (midwife) said it was vital to have proper checks at this stage, apparently the only phone appointments they are doing in our area are the early ones pre-24 weeks. Just booked in for my first appointment with a midwife and it's over the phone. You are passing a message to a BabyCenter staff member.

Now I’m just waiting for my first scan appointment which should come in the next week or so. This product is displayed based on comments within this post. I was told that that would now be part of my 12wk scan. They took my blood sugar readings as I have gestational diabetes and asked me to email the readings next week. So I'd say how ever small your concern contact them. So im hoping the baby will stay safe in there! Its my second pregnancy and I’m classed low risk but it’s really unnerving that I’m not getting any proper antenatal care hoping they’ll see me face to face when I’m 36 weeks or so. We listened to heartbeat, checked my urine and did BP. I’ve not been seen since 29 weeks (currently 33w) as my daughter developed symptoms 2 weeks ago so I had to cancel the 32w appt (no phone call offer made) and then on day 8 of isolation me and oh developed symptoms and where we live (isle of Man) you have to self-isolate again for a full 14 days so I won’t be “free” until a week tomorrow.. I’m meant to get a phone call on Tuesday from the midwife but the GP receptionist said all appointments will now be phone calls. My midwife called and said not to come in to my next appointment and that she’d conduct it over the phone. I have my 20 week scan today so that makes it easier as I know my little one is being checked. The only worry is that it meant I couldn’t have my usual observations like blood pressure and urine etc which as a high risk pregnancy and being type 2 diabetic are essential. Most people are having midwife appointments over the phone with checks at scan day at the hospital then from 28 weeks we have face to face appointments, All very straight forward but also chance for you to ask anything if you need to .

Your midwife or doctor should give you information about: Is it normal for a booking in (initial appointment) with a midwife to be over the phone? I called and they asked me in for an onservation and found I have a urine infection which I need antiobiotics for. I was worried about this too as I remember from my first having BP (blood pressure) and urine done at 16 and 24 weeks. I had my booking appointment over the phone lasted about 45mins. The midwifery unit wouldn’t give me her telephone number so just have to hope she hasn’t forgotten me ‍♀️. I’m the same.
