Changes to pregnancy care 'not exactly rocket science'

In its report the health watchdog NICE recommends the following changes, adding that some are "not exactly rocket science".

  • More weekend and out-of-hours services for women at risk
  • Separate those who are having a baby from those who are losing a baby
  • Help women who do not access medical help readily, such as recent migrants, refugees and asylum seekers
