hi miyajima, im in redruth and my midwife with my 2nd pregnancy was bloomin useless, if it was my first i would have asked for another one, as the first time i had a lovely midwife in penryn and it made such a difference. Especially with it being your first preg you wan to have someone you like and trust.
to be fair to them, they are understaffed and on call midwives do have babies to deliver etc which are very unpredictable but then on the other hand its your pregnancy and you have evry right to be selfish and get the level of care you want.
I would phone your clinic, docotors or wherever your midwife is based and ask how you go about getting an appiontment sooner, good luck
I think I am sorted. Asked for a different one and have a lovely one who is very no nonsense and exactly what I wanted. Stupidly I didn't realise that it won't automatically be her who delivers the baby. Mind you, a private one costs about 3k!
