    Is there any way of me requesting a different midwife? Would anyone know how to go about it?

    I've never met her or spoken to her (she was off sick the first time and on annual leave second appt)
    I've just called to see if she can do my MatB1 form (was told by another midwife on my last appt to call today) and her voicemail said she's either in day off or annual leave and not to leave a message)

    How can I be 5 months gone and never to have spoken to her or seen her? It's annoying me now.

    I've seen different ones but never my own.

    I've asked for a new one, could've really done with the support to be honest, feel pretty let down so far.

    Mine was written on my green form, but I have a new one from now according to the Community Midwife Team Leader, thankfully it's a midwife that I've seen before.

    I dunno where all of my courage has come from, I'd never have dared ask before but I needed to do something it was stressing me out.

    Ive never had a consistent midwife but am hospital led anyway so towards the end i dont have extra appointments etc , but if midwife led like you id want some consistancy too

    Being brave comes with pregnancy, im slightly less rarrrr after baby , i mellow out a bit.

    Mine is due to go on maternity leave soon but I've never seen her. Not bothered I think you just get whoever is on shift in my hospital when you go in. Would be nice to have your own. X

    I don't mind with not seeing my midwife each time but the one on my form (the one assigned by doctors) isn't even available by phone, it's pretty irritating.
