'Continuity of carer' in midwifery is when a woman has consistency in who they see during their pregnancy, labour and postnatal period.
In this video, three midwives share their experiences of working in this way and talk about the benefits they've seen for women, babies and their own practice. They provide examples of how this model can improve the safety of services and offer advice for teams and individuals embarking on the continuity of carer journey.
Note: Subtitles are available by turning on the caption mode in YouTube.
