Constipation and haemorrhoids are two of the most common problems experienced by pregnant women, causing considerable discomfort and impairing quality of life. Kellogg’s All-Bran® is a rich source of wheat bran fibre which is proven to be one of the most effective cereal fibres for improving digestive function.

Kellogg’s is honored to be partnering with the RCM to provide information and advice to midwives and help the women in their care to manage their digestive health and improve their wellbeing during pregnancy.

Stand: 62A

New AmnioSense™ is the only home test available in the UK that can help women understand if a fluid leak during pregnancy is more likely amniotic fluid or urine. As accurate as hospital-based tests, AmnioSense™ is a panty liner containing a unique detector, so it’s a familiar format and easy to use. AmnioSense™ detects fluid by testing the pH (acidity) levels and ammonia levels. Even the smallest amount of amniotic fluid leakage will create a visible blue and/or green stain. Clinical research was considered by NICE1 and The Committee concluded that the adoption of AmnioSense™, should be encouraged. 1Vision Amniotic Leak Detector to assess unexplained vaginal wetness in pregnancy

Caring Matters Now is the only dedicated UK charity supporting those affected by Congenital Melanocytic Naevi. Birthmarks and moles are very common human characteristics. On the whole, they are harmless, but for a very small percentage of the population an abundance of moles present at birth, known as Congenital Melanocytic Naevi (CMN), could indicate a potentially fatal gene mutation that causes moles to develop on the brain and spinal cord too. Congenital Melanocytic Naevi is not detectable before birth. Caring Matters Now works to raise awareness of this rare condition and provides support and information to those affected. www.caringmattersnow.co.uk
