If you’re planning a pregnancy, whether it’s your first or you already have children, you may find the following information useful.
Pregnancy can be an exciting but daunting time for women and their partners. There are many choices to make and questions to answer and through our webpages and contact with our staff we aim to help you and your family to have the best possible experience at this special time. During your pregnancy journey you can expect to meet a number of healthcare professionals, this page lists the people you’re most likely to meet. Some may have trainee students with them – you’ll be asked if you mind the students being present.
There is lots of information available for pregnant women online. It can be difficult to know what is and what is not good advice. For this reason we advise using websites that are endorsed by the NHS.uk or national charities. We have included information and leaflets from national resources which are updated regularly, many of which come in additional languages and easy read guides. There are plenty of multilingual resources here.
