You will then be contacted to arrange your booking appointment, which will happen when you’re around 8-12 weeks pregnant, or as soon as possible if you believe that your pregnancy is further along. There is no need to see your GP unless you have existing health problems.

If you have any concerns about your health or your baby’s health before your booking appointment, please arrange to see your GP.

If you have any existing health problems such as high blood pressure or epliepsy for example, you should book to see your GP when you find out that you’re pregnant, so that they can review any medication you’re taking and see if you need any additional care. Please do not stop taking your medication until instructed to do so by a GP or specialist for your condition.
