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 carer, 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

Alexandra Birch, Programme Lead for the Pan Staffordshire Maternity Transformation Programme and Midwife for the CCGs said: “It is important that transforming care for women, babies and families is led by local women who use the service. We are forming a system that ensures the needs of local women is met and brings together all maternity professionals.
