Ideally this should be by 10 weeks of your pregnancy.
Early in your pregnancy, your midwife or doctor will give you written information about how many appointments you're likely to have and when they'll happen.
You should have a chance to discuss the schedule with them.
You'll be offered a series of appointments with a midwife, or sometimes with a doctor who specialises in pregnancy and birth (an obstetrician).
They will check that you and your baby are well, give you useful information to help you have a healthy pregnancy (including healthy eating and exercise advice) and answer any questions you may have.
Has anyone had twins and been told on early ultrasound that there was just one?
When you first learn that you're pregnant, get in touch with a midwife or GP as soon as possible.
If you've had a baby before, you'll have around seven antenatal appointments.
Under certain circumstances, for example if you develop a medical condition, you may have more.
You can book an appointment with your GP or directly with your midwife as soon as you know that you're pregnant.
Your GP surgery or a Children’s Centre can put you in touch with your nearest midwifery service.
