Bleeding in Pregnancy


Although bleeding in pregnancy can be very frightening for women, it is fairly common. It doesn’t always mean that there is a problem.

If you are under 20 weeks pregnant and experiencing vaginal bleeding please contact your GP (in working hours) or call NHS 111 out of hours. Click here for more information.

There are many different causes of bleeding in later pregnancy and these need to be investigated by your maternity hospital to monitor your baby to rule out any problems.
