Mental health continuity of care

I got referred to the continuity team, due to poor mental health before falling pregnant.

For my first appointment, I got a random text with a time and date. I responded that I couldn’t make it and requested that I contacted them when my rota was released (student nurse).

I didn’t hear anything back. I called 3 times in the coming weeks to be told that the midwife will call me back.

She never did so I took the day off to attend my appointment. When I got there, she looked me up and down and said to me “I thought you couldn’t make it” before walking out and leaving a different midwife to see to me.
