Due to having a spinal cord injury and because of the medication I am taking I am considered a high risk pregnancy. I am not sure when my due date is because we had a miscarriage on 23rd May, but we will know after a ultra sound on friday.
Could anyone advise when a high risk or normal pregnant woman should have her first ob appointment?
Our doctor confirmed that we had conceived on 23rd June, but didn't bother to send a referral for the ob. We are going public and I know the system is overloaded and am worried we should be seeing the ob right away. We have talked to our GP and my pain management specialised about the multiple medications I am taking, but they both gave us limited information saying we should try and take as little medication as possible.
Has anyone else had to deal with the guilt of taking medication?

Timing first OB appointment / high risk pregnancy

An early appointment for the hospital I work in is around 8-10 weeks depending on circumstances. Once you've had your ultrasound and pregnancy is confirmed I would be asking your GP to send off the referral - making sure they request an early appt for a high risk pregnancy. We have a dedicated GP liaison midwife who looks after all the referrals and categorises them, but not every hospital would work the same.
