The Start4Life campaign has distributed two million free booklets to support pregnant women, encouraging mothers to be to share information about their health.
Health Minister Dr Dan Poulter said the leaflets are available to all pregnant women through their GPs and midwives.
Expectant mothers may be divulging too much pregnancy information on social media, a survey suggests.
Two in five people believe that pregnant women "overshare" details on websites like Facebook, according to a poll by Netmums and the Department of Health's Start4Life campaign.
Nine in 10 of those surveyed said they had seen an image online of a friend's scan and 22% said they had viewed a photo of a positive pregnancy test.
More than two thirds of the 2,000 Netmums members surveyed felt that mothers to be were more likely to try to show a "perfect" pregnancy than a realistic one.
