Maternal health 

If you have recently found out that you are pregnant, you will be given lots of information by your GP / midwife about preparing for the birth and care you can expect during the pregnancy.

As well as preparing for the birth, there are lots of important health considerations to be aware of relating to the health of you and your baby – including vaccinations, how your pregnancy can affect existing health conditions and how to keep you and your baby healthy.

There is lots of information on maternal health on the NHS Choices website, including key information about:

  • vaccinations,
  • staying healthy during pregnancy,
  • mental health,
  • common ailments,
  • and much more.
