Your midwife should give you information about preparing for labour and birth, including how to recognise active labour, ways of coping with pain in labour, and your birth plan.

Your midwife: 

  • Review, discuss and record the results of any screening tests from the last appointment.
  • Use a tape measure to measure the size of your uterus.
  • Measure your blood pressure and test your urine for protein.
  • Offer your second anti-D treatment if you're rhesus negative.

They'll discuss with you the reasons why a caesarean might be offered, what the procedure involves, the risks and benefits, and the implications for future pregnancies and births.
