Better Births

In February 2016, Better Births set out the five-year plan for NHS maternity services in England to become safer and more personalised. There is a dedicated website http://betterbirths.rcm.org.uk/. which hosts a variety of resources and information covering three key topics; continuity of care, facilitating normality and addressing inequalities.

Jacque Gerrard, Director England and Mary Ross-Davie, Country Director for Scotland jointly wrote a blog about Better Births and how this would be implemented: https://www.rcm.org.uk/news-views-and-analysis/views/better-births-and-the-best-start-implementing-the-english-and-scottish
