In this section you can find out about the experience of conditions that threaten women’s lives in pregnancy and childbirth by seeing and hearing people share their personal stories on film.
While pregnancy and childbirth in the UK is safer now than at any time in history, there are still occasionally women who experience life-threatening complications during their pregnancy.
Our researchers travelled all around the UK to talk to 35 women and 11 fathers or partners in their own homes. Find out what people said about issues such as pregnancy and symptoms, transfer from critical care, fathers’/partners’ experiences in hospital, and counselling.
We hope you find the information helpful and reassuring.
