The Midwifery Conference: Supporting the Health of Mothers and Babies
“We will ensure every expectant mother is supported: from pregnancy, to birth, to the critical first months of parenthood.”
(The RT Matt Hancock MP, Secretary of State for Health & Social Care, 2018)
In 2017, there were 755,042 live births in the UK whereby 3,200 of these births were still births – at a time when it has never been more vital to reduce miscarriages, save lives and further promote support and wellbeing for mothers and babies. The Midwifery Conference: Supporting the Health of Mothers and Babies has been designed to provide ultrapractical strategies and real-life examples to support and manage the long-term nationwide targets of midwifery. By offering a clear understanding of how the NHS and England’s health care associations can enhance the tradition of midwifery.
The agenda will be based around the Department for Health and Social Care’s NHS Long-Term Plan (2018) whereby £20.5 billion worth of funding has been allocated to improve the quality of patient care and health outcomes over the next 5 years including midwifery. Thematic discussions will include: birthing, breastfeeding, the types of treatment and support that are available for both families, mothers and babies throughout pregnancies, improving services for women and supporting mental health.
Delegate feedback from last year’s conference includes:
“It fulfilled my expectations”
“Thoroughly enjoyed the day. Every speaker was interesting and relevant”
“Very enjoyable conference took a lot away from it”
“I found this conference very current and uplifting”
