Once the doctor or receptionist is aware you are pregnant they will supply you with an information pack. You will need to contact the midwife to arrange an appointment. Usually the first appointment is at 10-11 weeks. If you have had problems with an earlier pregnancy, or there are special circumstances, an earlier appointment may be appropriate.
Currently it is recommended that you continue taking folic acid supplements until 13 weeks. Also see Antenatal Clinic.
