Pregnancy / Newborn

This category has lots of information about pregnancy planning and what happens during both pregnancy and labour. It also covers common problems that can affect newborn babies. Our doctor-authored leaflets will answer questions such as "How do I prepare to get pregnant?" (yes, some planning is a good idea!), "What screening tests will I be offered and do I have to have them?". Many women can have anxieties about labour and knowing what will happen and what your options are for pain relief for example, can help ease those worries. Information regarding common (as well as less common) pregnancy problems and how they are dealt with is also found here.
