Pregnancy and Complex Social Factors: A Model for Service Provision for Pregnant Women with Complex Social Factors.


National Collaborating Centre for Women's and Children's Health (UK).


This guideline aims to: identify and describe best practice for service organisation and delivery that will improve access, acceptability and use of services; identify and describe services that encourage, overcome barriers to and facilitate the maintenance of contact throughout pregnancy; describe additional consultations with and/or support and information for women with complex social factors, and their partners and families, that should be provided during pregnancy, over and above that described in the NICE guideline ‘Antenatal care: routine care for the healthy pregnant woman’ (2008) (clinical guideline 62); identify when additional midwifery care or referral to other members of the maternity team (obstetricians and other specialists) would be appropriate, and what that additional care should be.
