3 tips for your appointment
Seeing your doctor is not just about confirming your pregnancy or having routine tests to make sure you and your baby are off to a good start. It’s also an opportunity to ask questions and get your head around what lies ahead. Make the most of your time with your doctor with these simple tips.
1. Be prepared
Once your tests and scans are complete make sure you bring them with you to any other specialist appointments. Don’t forget to ask lots of questions and write the answers down, often there is a lot to take in when you first find out you’re pregnant, writing things down will help you remember everything later.
2. Be proactive
Make a list of the things you’d like to talk about in order of priority. Don’t be afraid to bring up your concerns – discussing everything with your doctor is a good idea as even small things can have significant effects on your health.
3. Concentrate on the appointment
Turn off your mobile so you won’t be distracted.
