If you are pregnant or suspect you are pregnant:
The first step should be to confirm your pregnancy with a test. This is done by a urine (wee) pregnancy test which detects a hormone produced in pregnancy. You can buy a testing kit to do at home, or it can be done for you at your GP, MESMAC (in Hull) or school nurse.
For further information on pregnancy testing go to the NHS website.
Continuing with the pregnancy:
Contact your GP or community midwife service. Some useful links are below:
