|Just under a quarter of pregnant women do not think they get enough advice about their pregnancy from their doctor, research has suggested.
Only 24 per cent felt adequately informed and around half did not take any kind of prenatal course.
The research was led by Miguel Angel Herraiz, the head of the obstetrics department at the Hospital Clinico San Carlos in Madrid.
"We need to provide a birth plan and explain well and at all times how the process is going to be," he said.
