Mothers-to-be may be divulging too much pregnancy information on social media, a survey suggests.
Two in five people believe that pregnant women 'overshare' details on websites such as Facebook, according to a poll by Netmums and the Department of Health's Start4Life campaign.
Nine in 10 of those surveyed said they had seen an image online of a friend's scan and 22 per cent said they had viewed a photo of a positive pregnancy test.
More than two-thirds of people felt that mothers-to-be were more likely to try to show a 'perfect' pregnancy than a realistic one, according to the survey of 2000 Netmums members who use Facebook.
And 62 per cent said they felt friends were more likely to talk about trivial aspects of their pregnancy rather than important matters such as their health.
Netmums founder Siobhan Freegard added: 'The internet is often a source of support and advice for mums and mums-to-be, but the relationship many have with Facebook can be complex.
'Whilst lots of mums enjoy sharing information and offering advice, new trends and the desire to show the best possible image to the world can mean that many mums feel the site piles on the pressure.
'It's never good to worry too much about what people think, and so instead we encourage mums to make the most out of the support available from other mums online and initiatives such as Start4Life.'
