Becks Weston is the Better Births Project Midwife for Portsmouth Hospital University Trust. She has been qualified for just over 3 years and has spent 2 ½ years working within continuity. She knew early on in her training that she wanted to work in a different way to the current traditional model of care. She could see how meaningful relationships between women and their midwives had such an impact on their overall wellbeing as well as improving their outcomes in the intrapartum period and postnatally. This was solidified for her when she completed her caseloading module as a student. When the opportunity to become part of the first continuity team was advertised after she qualified, she applied to become involved in the exciting change to practice. Becks worked within a continuity team for two years before successfully securing the role Better Births Midwife, which involves the implementation of Midwifery Continuity of Carer across the maternity service resulting in this becoming the default model of care.
