Anything else?

Was meant to have an appointment at 31 weeks pregnant so call up to book it and get through to an answering machine where leave my name and number for them to call me back to book appointment

I'm now 35 weeks pregnant and after leaving about three messages a week still no phone call to book check up

I don't know that my baby is 100% ok and I'm getting closer and closer to my due date but it seems that my pregnancy isn't important to these people

I'm just another number on their system

I have even been down there several times to book in person and was turned away because there wasn't anyone to book for me

Thanks for your support and care through my first pregnancy brentwood community!
