    Default Is 14 weeks pregnant normal for first appointment booked?

    I have just called the women's clinic at my chosen public hospital, and they had already received my referral from my dr and said it was booked for 14 weeks pregnant? I was hoping to get into the midwifery clinic and that seems a bit far along for my first appointment?

    This seems pretty normal, I was 15 weeks when i had my first appointment with my midwife at the birth centre.

    I think I was 16 weeks when I had my first appointment, it is pretty standard, you then will only see them monthly until you are quite a bit further along, in my experience.

    Normal in public, even a little early. In private I'd expect to see someone around 8-10wks.

    Thanks so much for all your quick replies Glad to hear that is all normal. I had my last child 8 years ago and did shared care. So my doctor saw me from very early. And good to know i need to book all my screenings with the gp. He isn't my regular dr and is kinda vague with whats next.
