Q: how does antenatal care work?
i'll be going thru the public health system and i have no idea how OB's and midwives fit into everything. i'll be staying with my GP thru-out my preg (he's a former OB) however;
when do i meet the midwife?
what happens if there are complications with preg or birth and im not with an OB?
who handles the care/checkups after bub comes, and we're home? (obviously im not talking about the actual care of bub, that's my job! *lol*)
i've read 'going it alone' but it seems to be more aimed at people who have private health insurance.
i would love to hear how other mums-to-be went about it all!
also, i have my first appmnt (after going to him to see if i was preg) with GP on 5 Dec, what sort of things to i need to tell him and what sort of things should i ask him??? i have no idea at all!!! i dont want to miss something vital that might affect bub's health.
Thanks heaps and have a wonderful day! grin
