Contrary to popular belief, a mum-to-be actually doesn't need to eat for two. Actually, during the ﬁrst trimester you don't need to eat any more than you would normally. And even by the third trimester you only need to eat the additional calories equivalent to of a glass of milk and half a sandwich!

Experiencing lower back or pelvic pain? Our expert physios can give you advice on managing any symptoms and the correct treatment.
This is my first experience of using a digital health service and it was recommended to me by a number of friends. I am not the most confident of people and found this to be a very convenient, straightforward and confidential way of talking to a doctor. The fact that you can use the service 24/7, booking all appointments by phone and the doctor appears on time is very good. The app is very easy to use and one that I would use again rather than visit a GP practice.
Look out for our GP interviews - they provide the low down on what you want to know when pregnant and as a new mum.
