Early Pregnancy

Some of the language used is medicalised and we are aware that this may be emotionally difficult to read. However, it is important that you are aware of the medical terminology that is likely to be used by healthcare providers. To try and help you as best as we can with this, we have provided a glossary of terms to refer to when reading the information. We have also provided additional information leaflets and web links that we hope will be of support to you.
