    My first post! I'm 4 weeks pregnant! First time. What now?

    Hi everyone,

    What an excellent supportive forum. I have enjoyed reading through all the advice and support here.

    This is my first post as I recently found out I'm 4 weeks pregnant. The next step however is: I have NO idea how this works and do not have anyone I can ask here yet.

    Sorry for such a big and vague question but what do I do now?!

    I have a meeting with my doctor this evening in Kennedy Town (the doctor was on a list of from my insurance provided through my company)

    After tonight what do I need to do to get organised? How many checkups should I have throughout and for what? Do I need to be thinking about birthing options already? Public or private? I'm guessing my company will cover private as I have insurance with them? Still I don't understand how much they cover and when to even bring this up with my company?

    (again sorry to sound like such an idiot with understanding health insurance - the truth is I am so rarely ill and have never claimed my health insurance before).

    Any advice at all would be appreciated.

    Maire.

    Congratulations!!

    Have a read through this thread.

    You do need to look into your insurance cover ASAP and decide if you are going public or private. Private rooms need to be booked soon, and you will need to decide on a Dr relatively quickly.

    Great. Thanks so much for the link, very useful. I'm finding out I am covered for right now insurance wise and will take it from there.


    One thing - the link to the popular OBGYNs doesn't work. Do you have a list elsewhere please?
