    Group B Strep is the leading cause of meningitis in newborn babies in the UK. Two babies a day develop GBS infection, one baby dies every week and one baby survives with disability. The UK’s rate of group B Strep infection in infants is double that of other developed countries, despite guidelines being in place since 2003. This FREE webinar will give you key information on group B Strep and the current guidelines, the very latest news about the ground-breaking GBS3 trial (an RCT of routine GBS screening), and suggestions of how to tackle the challenges GBS poses for midwives today.

In recent years, concerns about staff shortages and patient safety has been raised, with staff even writing a letter to the trust board over their fears. A spokesperson from the trust has said “We will endeavour to continue recruiting until all vacancies have been filled, and our staff will continue working tirelessly to improve services for local women and families.” Read full story.

    As a professional who has worked on ending violence against women and girls (VAWG) in the United Kingdom for almost 13 years, I wanted to reflect on how domestic abuse is still not prioritised within maternity services as it should be. Pregnancy: A time of increased risk Pregnancy is often a time when domestic violence either starts or escalates – the oft cited statistic is that domestic abuse starts or escalates in 30% of cases. It has been referred to as ‘double-intentioned violence,’ as physical attacks directly affect both the mother and the unborn child.[1] The Confidential

    NHS maternity units have been told they have until next April to increase the numbers of midwives on wards to expected levels after a near £100 million investment. NHS England has told hospitals they must bring staffing levels for midwives up the levels needed to meet their planned demand from mothers and to ensure women get safe care. In a letter to NHS trusts, England’s chief nurse Ruth May said she expected hospitals to use their share of a recent £96 million investment by NHS England to boost staffing levels along with extra spending from local budgets. NHS England has carri

    Maternity services are at risk because demoralised midwives are planning to quit the NHS, healthcare leaders have warned. A new report, carried out by the Institute for Public Policy Research, suggests 8,000 midwives may depart due to the “unprecedented pressure” of the coronavirus pandemic. Researchers, who surveyed about 1,000 healthcare professionals from around the country in mid-February, discovered that two-thirds reported being mentally exhausted once a week or more.

    Findings: A systematic review of midwife-led continuity of care models identified benefits for women and babies, with no adverse effects. Non-randomised studies have shown benefits of midwifery continuity of care for specific groups, such as Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women. There are also benefits for midwives, including high levels of job satisfaction and less occupational burnout. Implementing midwifery continuity of care in public and private settings in Australia has been challenging, despite the evidence in its favour and government policy documents tha

    The Royal College of Midwives (RCM) has launched a new positioning statement to call for a Digital Midwife in every maternity service in the next 12 months. The trade union, which represents the majority of practising midwives, has called for every trust to recruit or train Digital Midwives to lead on digital transformation programmes and ensure systems that are introduced are interoperable. The RCM has said it’s not just a call for investment but a need to ‘drive forward digital transformation and clinical informatics of maternity care’. Hermione Jackson, RCM Digital Advisor,

    Can you tell us a bit about yourself and your role? I am a Consultant Midwife, there are around 100 of us in the UK. I have a relatively unique role in that I spend 50% of my time in the Trust and 50% of my time at the University. I’m currently leading the development and implementation of continuity in Worcestershire. When did you first work in a Continuity of Carer (CoC) model? I became a caseload midwife (CoC) within weeks of qualifying as I knew this was the way that I wanted to practice, and the first team was being set up locally within a designated Sure Start area.
