Better Care

Learning Disability Services Resources

Below are links to a wide range of resources which were developed to help women with learning disabilities make their own choices at times of pregnancy and maternal care. The original material was sourced from the pregnancy and maternity guidance on NHS Choices, and then transformed by our clinicians into "Easy-Read" versions for mothers, expecting mothers or their partners.
