I just think something is wrong

If you feel that something is wrong, or if you are worried about the baby, call your midwife or doctor to talk about it.
Maternity care is still essential during the coronavirus pandemic and services are still running. If you have any concerns about your pregnancy call your GP, midwife, nearest early pregnancy unit or maternity unit.

Tell your midwife or doctor if there is anything that you're worried about. Do not worry if you've talked about it before and don't be concerned about whether you're wasting anyone's time. This is your pregnancy and it's important to trust your own instincts if you feel something isn't right.

Do not rely on advice from family members, friends or the internet. Your midwife will be happy to talk to you about your concerns and will do everything necessary to reassure you.

Find out what to do if you feel your midwife is not listening to you.
