    firstly i only get to see her on a wednesday between 1:30-3, with working 11-7 its impossible and secondly i've asked for a call back soooo many times and never ever got a reply!!!

    i need to get a MATB1 form and its proving impossible! need to sort it before i leave on the 2nd march but she just doesnt seem bothered!! do u ladies know how i can get one without wasting anymore time on her! lol any advice will be greatly appreciated!!!

    U should've had it at 25 weeks!

    I would give ur doctor a call and see if they can help.

    She does sound rather rubbish. Hope the dr can help xx

    She sounds rubbish. Is there only the one midwife ? If so, I'd probably ask at reception or speak to one of the GPs - they should be able to help. Also, perhaps ask whether you are able to have a different MW - explain that you're not happy with this one. Good luck! X

    GP should be able to give you one or they can get the mw to leave on at the surgery for you :) and does work not allow you to go out between these times to see ur mw as they are supposed to and pay u at same time??

    as a couple of the other ladies have said you are LEGALLY entitled to PAID time off for all you ante-natal appointments!!! make sure they're letting you do this!

    and i got my MATB1 from my GP, they cant do it over the phone though.... they have to 'prove' you are preggers lol. i just walked in n he looked at belly and that was it :)

    Have you sorted this, you are entitled to paid time off to see your midwife, and GP can give you your MATB1 if you have an appointment with them xx
