If you are expecting your first child, you are likely to have up to 10 appointments. If you have had a baby before, you should have around seven appointments. In certain circumstances, for example if you develop a medical condition, you may have more.
Your antenatal appointments should take place in a private setting where you feel able to discuss sensitive problems that may affect you, such as domestic violence, sexual abuse, mental illness or drug use.
