Pregnancy, births and maternity: data introduction

 This section covers:

  • Population fertility
  • Miscarriages and abortions
  • Maternal and birth outcomes
  • Infant feeding and breastfeeding

Please note that our Sexual health section covers termination and teenage pregnancy; and our Children and young people section covers the life stages from infancy through to adolescence.

Please note: If you require the most up-to-date data available, please check the data sources directly as new data may have been published since these data pages were last updated. Although we endeavour to ensure that the data pages are kept up-to-date, there may be a time lag between new data being published and the relevant ScotPHO web pages being updated.
