RCM Pregnapp

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.

Over 200 sources

for the journey from pregnancy, birth and beyond

Official and credible

from NHS and other key organisations and charities


information gathered by The Royal College of Midwives

Stepping up

to public health for all women and families accessing maternity care

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.

We have lots more to tell you about. Here you can find out more about the RCM Stepping up to Public Health Project.
