I rang the midwife and asked them to send it to me as I wasn't seeing my midwife either. I just explained that work are hassling me and i could lose out on SMP if I dont get it to them asap. Just explain you are not seeing midwife till 28 weeks and that is too late.

They have to get it to you and there are time limits we have to stick to or employers have to stick to to sort things out for you.

Should be fine.

Will try but it's a bum trying to get hold of her sometimes - although she does get back to me pretty quickly.

D'you reckon the hosp would give me it or does it specifically have to come form midwife?

You can also get the MatB1 from your GP, hopefully they should be easier to get hold of than your m/w?

Defo - seeing doc at 25 weeks, so a bit sooner.

I could always ring her.

My midwife makes her next appointments at 20 weeks so that she can give her patients the MAT B1 form, so hopefully won't have a problem getting mine. Which reminds me I must ring next week to make that appointment - seems to be coming round really quickly

Hi Jen, any midwife or Gp can give you the form, although as has already been said it can't be issued until 20 weeks.
You can try your GP, although they may say no as lots of GPs think only mw's can do them.
If you go to the hosp they should sign one(if they have some), or do you see your community midwife at the gp surgery? Can you just ring and ask her to leave you one at the desk iif you cant get an appt with her.
