NHS launches pregnancy advice web site
“Whether you’re planning to have a baby, are already pregnant, or your new baby has just arrived, our new interactive pregnancy planner is for you,” the site opens.
It’s the perfect way to find out all you need to have a healthy and happy pregnancy and to make sure you get the care that’s right for you. It contains over 250 pages of NHS accredited information, including pictures, videos and planning tools. You’ll also find all the facts you need to choose the best maternity services in your area.
The NHS is no stranger to offering medical advice online, and already runs the NHS Direct health information web site.
The site offers help on pre-pregnancy, pregnancy and labour, parent and baby advice, and general pregnancy information.
Pregnancy can be a huge mystery, and with the Internet’s myriad of information – some accurate and some wholly misleading – on the subject, it’s good to know that a trusted medical organisation is providing comprehensive coverage.
