Answer: Hi, Now is a good time to work out what sort of care you want for your pregnancy. You can enquire through your local hospital what services are available in your area. You can also contact local midwives and birth centres that may be local. You will need to have some routine blood tests in the early weeks of pregnancy. If you have health cover now your baby is also usually covered during the pregnancy but you will need to check your type of health cover. Best wishes, Alex
