Supportive Pregnancy Health Information on the Internet

Many women ask me where they should look for information to help them look after themselves, during pregnancy, on the internet. They don’t always want to come to a GP or midwife if there is a simple solution to their symptom. Often they are reassured by reading that their symptoms are common at a particular point of pregnancy.   Or, the information they find suggests a simple lifestyle related or over the counter remedy. So I decided to create a blog with a few useful websites.

Patient.co.uk: Patient.co.uk has information on what to do when you are trying to conceive as well as when you are pregnant. It also has information that is useful for general health and for your little one when they arrive. It is a UK based site.

The Doctor and Daughter’s Guide to Pregnancy: The Doctor and Daughter’s Guide to Pregnancy is written by a British pregnant woman whose father is an obstetrician. It gives really supportive advice during pregnancy about things like what you can eat.

The American Pregnancy Association: This American site covers things like how your partner can support you during pregnancy and also topical things like what to do about Zika virus.

Pregnancy Birth and Baby: Pregnancy Birth and Baby is an Australian government funded site which supports parents through pregnancy and until their child is 5 years old.

Emma’s Diary: Emma’s diary is associated with the Royal College of General Practitioners in the UK and covers everything from pregnancy through to your toddler. It is UK based.

Tommy’s Midwives: This was a suggestion from my twitter followers who have found this really helpful: Tommy’s midwives

There are many other sites out there but I hope this sets you off on the right track. Please do let me know if there are any others that you think should be added to the list and why.

Any questions or comments do get in touch @PregnaPouch or PregnaPouch@gmail.com.

Best wishes and Good Luck
