The National Institute for Clinical Excellence (NICE) which advises the NHS, suggests that healthy pregnant women should have the following appointments during their pregnancy with their midwife or doctor.  Please note that if you are having more than one baby or are having any medical issues during your pregnancy then you should take advice from your care giver about the scheduling of your appointments.

Please note that for many of these appointments it does not matter if you are a week or so behind or ahead.  The important appointments are the 12 week and 20 week scans which should be done within the time frames outlined below.
