On my first app in Limerick Maternity (at 12 weeks) they told me that from now on I can go to the midwives clinic - as I have no medical issues and my first pregnancy was low-risk.
What does this mean though? The nurse I spoke to just mentioned that there will be less of a wait for me when I do have appointments.
Have any of you had any experience of the midwives clinic - Limerick or otherwise? What can I expect before, during and after childbirth? Is it actually a service or is it just a way of freeing up space and time in the normal clinic?
Thanks in advance
