Pregnancy and Birth Information Hub for women and families
Welcome to the RCM Pregnancy and Birth Information Hub. We aim to provide a place online for pregnant women and their families to access information which is free from scare stories and based on good evidence.Produced by the Public Health Project, Royal College of Midwives
We have been working with pregnant women, midwives, maternity support workers and other healthcare professionals in maternity across the UK.
You told us that the internet is a popular source of information for women, but that unregulated, scare-mongering content can cause high levels of anxiety and confusion. This RCM-hosted site will allow families to access information which is unbiased by commercial interest, factually correct and is issued by reputable sources.
With all our collective knowledge, we have brought this information hub together. Remember that you can talk to your midwife if what you need isn’t here or if something concerns you.
Check out the RCM Pregnapp without downloading an app from the app stores. Save it on your computer or phone.
We are just getting the app ready for the apple and android stores. Stay updated to see when it will be available.
