Gynae related question?

Hi there

I need advice, I'm currently 32 weeks pregnant, I phoned the only gynae in our region today just for a general checkup and the lady said that I need a referal letter from my doctor to be able too see him, WHY? Is this normal procedure? I'm originally from Durban and living in Newcastle and HATE every minute of it. Sorry for the complains but it's very frustrating living in a dorp without proper medical care.

In small towns, many GPs are trained to deal with normal pregnancies, and gynaecologists only see complications.

I know that my medical wanted a referral otherwise they would not pay for my visits to the gynae.

Hope it helps
