Pregnancy and birth

From getting pregnant and how to look after yourself during pregnancy, to when labour has started and what to bring to the hospital - you'll find it all here. Use the tabs on the left to navigate this section.

As well as the pages on our website, the national NHS Start4Life programme includes lots of pregnancy advice and information, which you can find at www.nhs.uk/start4life/pregnancy 

Charity organisation Tommy's also provides useful information in planning for pregnancy, at www.tommys.org/pregnancy-information/planning-pregnancy/planning-for-pregnancy-tool  

Your emotional health is just as important as your physical health. Pregnancy, birth and parenthood, or the loss of a baby, can all affect your emotional wellbeing. There are lots of resources about emotional wellbeing on this website.


Public Health England in May 2019 have published the two following infographics to highlight issues relating to pregnancy.
