Spotting is light, usually harmless, bleeding in early pregnancy. Spotting often happens around the time that your first period would be due if you weren’t pregnant.

Although it’s very common, if you do experience any bleeding during pregnancy, you should contact your midwife or GP as soon as possible, just to make sure it’s nothing serious.
