I am 8 months (30 weeks) pregnant and moving from London to Derby to join my husband. I have been trying to seek some advise from the Royal Derby Hospital regarding the NCT classes, midwife appointments , Labour ward etc. But, no one seems to be competent enough to guide me in the right direction-people in the Maternity ward simply say that I should get registered with the local GP first and then speak to them. On having a word with the local surgery they say that I can't be registered till the time I am in Derby and it would take around 2-3 weeks to get registered and to get all the records transferred.
What amazes me is the fact that no-one knows the process well. By the looks of it, by the time I am registered and ready to be looked at , the baby would have arrived!!!!!
I would really appreciate that someone in authority could please advise me at the earliest. I am moving to Derby on 19/03/11.
