Abstract

Over the last decade, the internet has become a popular source of health information among prospective parents. The aim of this literature review is to examine and review what is currently known about the use of the internet by mothers-to-be and the impact it has on their decision making. The review will examine studies published in the last ten years as it is thought that since 2004, major demographic, cultural and socio-economic changes have taken place in the United Kingdom, and one of the key leading factors, responsible for the changes, is the wider use of the internet (DH 2011).
