15  Bringing the passion back to midwifery to provide better care for mothers and babies

May 5, 2022 @ 12:00 – 12:50 UTC Timezone
Room A - BBB

Speaker: Gill Allen

Facilitator: Diane Fox

There is not a midwife in the world who would say “I do not like my job” or “I do not care” and yet many are leaving the profession, some with sadness, some with anger, and some because they have been broken .

Here at Portsmouth we were on the same track, but things are improving. I will share the journey, a difficult, challenging, yet successful story of how we implemented the Continuity of Carer model benefitting mothers and babies, as well as midwives.

I will explain the project and the phases of implementation, together with how the challenges we faced were overcome.  I will explain how the passion has been brought back to midwifery and alongside the sharing of statistics I will share the feedback that has been received from the families and our midwives.
