The London Measure of Unplanned Pregnancy (LMUP)              

This website provides information about the London Measure of Unplanned Pregnancy (LMUP), a psychometrically-validated measure of pregnancy planning/intention developed by Geraldine Barrett and colleagues.

The study to develop the measure began in 1998 and was funded by the UK Medical Research Council. The aim of the study was to find a better way of measuring unplanned pregnancy among women whose pregnancies had already occurred and the main publications are from 2002 onwards.

Work with the London Measure of Unplanned Pregnancy is ongoing. New information about the use of the measure (for example, validation with new populations, new translations, and further information about the interpretation of scores) will be included on this site.
