A one stop official reference for expectant and new parents

Directgov, the nation’s official website, has put together information for expectant mothers and new parents as well as those taking the first steps towards planning a family, bringing a range of official sources together in one place.

From advice for people trying to conceive, guidance on ther choices for giving birth, to locating support centres for services both pre- and post-birth as well as information on how to help both mother and new born stay healthy, is a must-visit site for any mums-to-be or new parents.

The site also helps give guidance on how the change in family status can affect benefits and entitlements, including a new text alert which informs mums-to-be when they qualify for the new Health in Pregnancy Grant. This one-off payment of £190 is available to all pregnant UK residents to give pregnant women the chance to invest in their individual needs during pregnancy – allowing them to be flexible how and where the money is spent.

Other useful and informative information for pregnant women and new mums on Directgov includes preparing for pregnancy and advice on conceiving, common complaints during pregnancy, going into labour, feeding baby and plenty of other useful information.
