    Default midwife group practice Wollongong

    How long did it take for Wollongong mgp to get back to you to tell you if you got in or not?
    I applied nearly 2 weeks ago.

    I waited 2.5 weeks. They have their meetings of a Wednesday. I found out when I popped into the clinic and asked (I work at the hospital, so it was easy for me to do).

    They told me then that I got in. They said I hadn't heard because I did get it & my midwife called that afternoon. Maybe just wait until Wednesday afternoon to chase up.

    Good luck. It is really nice to be able to call 1 midwife directly who knows you.

    They work in teams of 2 or 3, so if your midwife is called to a birth or something you see one of the others in the team. At my last appointment, my midwife had been at a birth all night, so I saw one of the others. She was fantastic as well.

    Yeah that's why I really want to get in because it's my first and I'm abit nervous about the whole labour situation I feel i would feel more comfortable with someone who has seen me my whole pregnancy? How far along are you?
    I'm 9w3days

    Wow you found out really early! I called at 7 weeks cause I didn't know what things were available until my doctor told me at 7 weeks then I went straight to the hospital after she explained he midwife program! Fingers crossed thanks so much for your help!

    Fingers crossed! I got the info from other girls at work, before I got pregnant. They told me to call as soon as I got a +Ve wee test! I have heard of people calling before they even tell their partners.

    People get on early, but once you have your booking appointment, you then also have to see the ob to get signed off as low risk, so people can get removed at any point, I.e. If they become high risk. If you don't get in straight away, ask them to keep you on a back up list or something and keep going through the general clinic.
