Last updated:24th Apr 2019

This guideline covers care during labour and birth for women who need extra support because they have a medical condition or complications in their current or previous pregnancy. The guideline also covers women who have had no antenatal care. It aims to improve experiences and outcomes for women and their babies.

NICE has also produced a guideline on care during labour and birth for healthy women and their babies.
