    Default What happens at the first midwife appointment?

    Mine is tomorrow, and I just want to be prepared.

    They won't do an internal examination or anything, will they?

    Also, is it at the midwife appointments that you get information about birth options, or is that antenatal classes?

    Thanks!

    No internal, just lots and lots of questions about you and your health, mental and physical. It can take a long time.

    I don't remember getting any info about birth options.
    Think that might be later on down the track.

    Lots of medical history questions, mental health questions etc. and if you have a partner with you, they will likely send him out for DV questions. I don't they even did standard obs in my first ones. It's all about booking in. So lots of forms etc
