The Top 50 Questions Googled During Pregnancy

A recent poll of 2,000 mums, commissioned by Pregnacare, found that 67% of them felt the internet was their lifeline during pregnancy, allowing them to ask the questions they were too embarrassed to ask in real life.

On average, the surveyed mothers would ask more than 1,000 questions over the nine months, with searching the internet being the most common way to ask (67%), followed by asking a midwife (59%), speaking to their own mum (48%) or friends (46%).

56% of mums polled think they asked more questions on Google than they did of people in real life, with 6 in 10 admitting searching for things they already knew the answer to.
