There is a tendency nowadays to take life for granted and expectations are high when it comes to a successful conception, pregnancy and birth. This is only right and proper as medical developments over the past hundred years have made pregnancy and childbirth in the UK, in the 21st Century, safer than ever. Antenatal care includes a plethora of tests, ultrasound scans and measurements to ensure a happy, healthy outcome for all concerned.
Sometimes life is not so straightforward so we are also here to help when things do not seem to be going smoothly. One of the best ways that parents can cope with difficulties in conception and pregnancy is to become well-informed about their situation. Reliance on the internet for advice is not a wise step as a Google search for answers often throws up more worries and problems and unreliable data than it solves. After all, Google was not designed to answer your specific pregnancy query, it was designed to make money and promote businesses. Your doctor is your first port of call for information and then, possibly, a reputable fertility clinic that has staff who can fill in all the details for you and take time to talk through your situation.
Qualified, experienced medical staff have the expertise and empathy to help you cope when you are suffering setbacks in your efforts to conceive and bring to term a successful pregnancy. Your situation is unique and you need not struggle alone. Sometimes it is difficult to come to terms with the fact that, for you, for some reason, pregnancy is not going to be easy and science is here to help. However this is a far cry from years ago when all sorts of ‘old wives’ tales’ circulated about how to become pregnant and honest, expert advice was not available.
