I go out everyday for a walk, I assume this is safe if I keep 2m from everyone else? I’m 31+2

my appoinent has been cancelled and I been advised by one of the midwife not to go unless I feel something is wrong as they are not being tested and some of them are off with the virus... what would you advise on this?

an elective Caesarian. is that likely to be changed due to Covid?
Jo Howells
01:01:30

room I would have freaked out if
Jo Howells
01:01:44
I saw that!
Cheryl

The hospital at which I am due to give birth at has a Birth Centre and a separate Obstetrics Ward (OW). If you request for epidural or go into complications, you will be moved from Birth Centre to the OW. Does the Covid situation (and therefore limited medical staff) mean that Midwifes/Doctors might / be more likely to deny me an epidural to try and keep me on the Birth Centre ward and avoid taking up resources / beds in the OW?

I have been on fertility medication. I am now 8 weeks pregnant (first time) but my early scan (due because of being on fertility medication) has been cancelled. I have had no symptoms whatsoever - should I get in touch with my midwife and request an early scan? I am very concerned as this is my 1st pregnancy and have been trying for 3 years.

Evie Mason
01:06:57
I’m planning on a home birth but they are currently on hold in my area, should I prepare to be in hospital instead? I’m due 28th June
Sarah
01:07:20
Thank you, that was great 😀
Terika Seaborn-Brown
01:07:26
Are there typical reasons why someone ends up in post natal?
Lucy Sunderland
01:07:33
Thank you !
Kelly
01:07:35
I need to have a diabetes test but I don't want to be in the hospital for hours on end - my midwife has said not to attend at the moment - is there another way I can have this test done - I am 26 weeks

Best to check with your hospital about the partner staying overnight, my hospial is allowing the partner to stay but cannot come and go.
Cheryl
01:08:23
Our ante-natal classes have been suspended and they are not planning to do anything online and neither have they put out any links to online materials to cover the same areas that ante-natal classes are meant to cover. Are you able to provide a course agenda of what would have been covered in ante-natal classes and link to online materials on these topics for us to read up ourselves?
Alison Murphy
01:08:28
Hi I'm really scared about the whole process with labour with this whole covid thing.. Someone mentioned that if you have anxiety and depression you can still have your partner with you the whole time is this true?
Paola Fagel
01:08:32
midwife led center or abc centre guessing is not running right?
Alison Murphy
01:10:11
I don't have that the only number I have is if I go into labour all notes are electronic in my hospital and not even clear and not helpful
Monica
01:11:05
in Portsmouth no water births are allowed
Coralie
01:13:04
The birth centre in my trust is now closed and apparently, water births as well as using water as a pain relief is not allowed anymore. I feel like this is going against our birth rights. Is there anything I can do to "fight back"?
kelly
01:13:33
i'm worried at not being able to have my mum/mother-in-law present for after the birth to help support me as a first time mum...if we both self isolate for a period (7 or 14 days?) can one of them move in with us?
Chiara M
01:13:59
I go out everyday for a walk, I assume this is safe if I keep 2m from everyone else? I’m 31+2. Do we have to wear a mask?
Lola
01:14:29
if I need to be induced what are my options if I can’t have a pessary. aiming for a VBAC but want to keep options open
carolinepiercy
01:16:05
I’m due in 6 weeks, do you think things will be more back to normal by then? Thanks a lot for the talk and all the information - very useful :)

With my first birth, I knew I wanted an epidural from the beginning. When I went into hospital, I was 3 cms so they told me to go and come back. By the time I came back I was 5 cm so ready for the epidural, but there were no rooms available. By the time they got me a room and the anesthesiologist I was 9cm and it was almost too late. I insisted on still having it. I'm worried this time that due to everything going on there will be even less beds and be even harder to get the epidural. Will this be the case?
Emilie.Harvey@worldfirst.com
01:18:25
Is there anyway to ensure I can get the epidural? Really anxious I won't have time to get one.
J
01:19:16
my mother and grandma both hemorrhaged after birth. how likely I am going to have the same problem? shall I let the hospital know.
Cheryl
01:19:43

Reshma

tinika Bulgin

Chiara M
01:28:54
I think some units have a 30% sickness rate so having to suspend some services. it’s so sad
sness

Alison Murphy
01:29:59

Hi. I'm late joining. Would it be possible to share the recording? The q+a has been really helpful
Lizzie
01:30:22
is there a higher risk of emergency c-section if I do go for the induction?
Lola
01:31:08
my question was also missed. what are the options for induction if you can’t have a pessary? planning a VBAC but thinking of if this isn’t possible
J
