Our patient information is developed by the RCOG’s Patient Information Committee, made up of obstetricians and gynaecologists, midwives, and members of the RCOG Women’s Network.

All patient information resources are reviewed every three years, or before that time if clinical guidance on which they are based changes. You can read more on the development process here.
