Don't rely on Dr Google

There are plenty of useful resources available online but make sure you check the credibility of any website you're reading. Also, don't soley rely on Dr Google - it's important you discuss all of your queries with your GP or midwife so you can feel confident you're receiving and acting on the correct advice.

Many women find comfort by engaging with others in online forums going through similar experiences. However, remember that with regards to conception and pregnancy, everyone's experience is different, so reading about someone else’s symptoms, conditions and results may not be the wisest decision for you. Your healthcare professional is the best resource available to you!
