The handbook and video below have been produced by Suffolk and North East Essex Local Maternity and Neonatal Services (LMNS). They are designed to help system partners inform service users how they can keep as healthy as possible prior to getting pregnant to reduce the risk of adverse clinical outcomes for the pregnant person and their child. These outcomes can impact the child for their entire life, including heightened risks of developing serious conditions such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and stroke in older life.
The assets are not designed to be shared with service users.
The video is broken into clearly-defined two-minute sections so partners can watch when they have a few moments spare. Subtitles can be generated by clicking on the first icon on the bottom right hand side of the screen.
The flipbook accompanies the video and contains the video narrative and local resources that service users can be signposted to for further help.
