As soon as you know you are pregnant, get in touch with a midwife or your GP to organise your antenatal care. You can also find out about local antenatal classes, which will help you meet other women and prepare you for becoming a mum. These may be run by your maternity service, midwife, GP or health centre. The National Childbirth Trust (NCT) also runs courses in many areas.
