Congratulations on your pregnancy, you and your baby are now a team, so get to know your growing bundle inside you.
Throughout pregnancy you will be given all types of information to cover multiple aspects of your pregnancy, during antenatal appointments. Anywhere from what not to eat, to how to plan for the birth of your baby and safe sleeping of your baby after birth. It is integral to get to know your baby’s individual pattern of movement.
Pregnancy information is available from a wide variety of sources, but it is important to remember hat you spend 24/7 with your baby, so you are your baby’s best advocate.
If you have any concerns about your pregnancy speak to your antenatal carer as they are the only people who can accurately advice you. But please trust your instincts and listen to your baby.
Every baby and every pregnancy is different, but by 32 weeks you should have established a regular pattern of movements with your baby. If you notice any change in their regular movements, contact your care provider immediately, do not wait another day.

“If you decide you want to have an obstetrician, or your GP has recommended you see one, finding the right obstetrician is similar to finding any service provider. You need to discover if they are able to give you the appropriate help and care that you may need, and in the manner, you want if possible.”
“It’s important that you research different obstetricians, to ensure you find the right fit for you.”
“The journey through pregnancy and birth can be filled with great joys, and sometimes worry. It’s important that you feel confident that whoever is on your team understands the needs and concerns of you and your family, and takes every aspect of that into consideration.”
“If you feel that you are not on the same page or you disagree with your obstetrician for whatever reason, try talking to them and explaining how you feel.”
Communication between you, your baby and your care provider is important.
“Don’t be worried about asking questions and telling your obstetrician exactly what you want. You are entering a partnership”
