Hospital Episode Statistics (HES), The Information Centre for health and social care

To ask the Secretary of State for Health what percentage of pregnant women did not seek maternity care until they were five months or more pregnant in each of the last five financial years for which figures are available, broken down by primary care trust. (195751)

Information is not available in the format requested.

However in our publication, ‘Maternity Matters: Choice, Access and Continuity of Care in a Safe Service’, we estimated that around 16 per cent. of all pregnant women, including many under 18 years of age, delay seeking maternity care until they are five months or more pregnant. A copy of the document is available in the Library.
