By the eight or ninth week of your pregnancy, you should have seen your family doctor and registered for antenatal care. If not, then make an appointments as soon as possible. Where you actually receive your antenatal care, and the type of care that you receive, is usually linked with where you ultimate want your baby to be delivered. The first consultation commonly called the booking in appointment is usually held at the maternity unit of your local hospital, where you can discuss your future care. You will be referred here by your family doctor.
It is useful to have an idea of where you would like the baby to be born, and to have discussed this with your partner, before the first antenatal appointment. However, don't worry if you are not sure there is plenty of time to make a decision and you can, of course, change your mind
