    HRT used to be a dirty word. Now it’s a battle cry. Women will begathering in Parliament Square in London later this month to support the menopause bill to demand free prescriptions for hormone replacement therapy in England. The bill could help thousands more women to access this life-changing treatment and will put the menopause under the microscope. For years, a combination of medical sexism, hysterical reporting and outdated science has held women back from asking for the health care they need. HRT replenishes the oestrogen, progesterone (and sometimes testosterone) that women lose wh

    A woman with stage 4 endometriosis said she was told she needed to "be more positive" before her diagnosis - despite heavy blood loss and pain. Anna Cooper, from Newbridge, Wrexham, started her periods at 11 and by the time she turned 14, her mother was pushing for a referral. Since then she has had 13 surgeries, with a 14th due in the coming months. She said: "It is not taken seriously enough. It seems to be that we are just not being heard at the minute."

    Key findings: Midwifery students perceive that being bullied in front of women or implicating them in the act adversely impacts their childbearing experiences.

Students believe that women lose confidence in both the midwifes’ and their ability to provide safe effective midwifery care and are left feeling awkward and uncomfortable, detracting

    ‘Work as done’ Because healthcare is constantly evolving and complex, by looking more closely at everyday work and finding out what actually happens, it allows an understanding of what it is, that frontline clinicians do to ensure successful outcomes. This is termed as looking at 'work as done' and informs us about the nuances, the adjustments, the compromises, the workarounds, the actions and the decision making that is taken to meet the needs of the patients they are caring for. ‘Work as done’ is a combination of expertise, clinical decisions, experience and tacit knowledge.

    Kit Tarka, my beautiful baby boy, was born healthy but admitted into special care shortly after birth. He died from the herpes virus (HSV-1) at just 13 days old. Herpes was not suspected in Kit until he arrived, extremely unwell, at the neonatal intensive care unit and someone asked if my partner James or I had had a cold sore recently. I had never had one in my life and my James hadn’t for many years. But by then it was too late. Kit never received the antivirals he needed to save his life. A diagnosis of herpes wasn’t confirmed until the day after he died. Seeking answers
