    Thanks everyone for your advice. I really have appreciated it.
    I decided to split care between private and POW.
    I went in to book my first appt being the downs screening at 12wks and whoaaaa! First appointment they would give me was late August!!!
    I'd be 20wks by then so off to private $$$ for me.

    Will head back to public for the following appt.

    Thanks again everyone.

    They only do the 12 weeks screening for DS if you are over a particular age (I think 40) in the public hospitals. I think you can choose to have it done and to pay for it yourself, but it is only scheduled for you if you are over that particular age...
