What you can do to help the campaign, competition winners and useful resources.
There is a shortage of midwives in the UK, resulting in fragmented, rushed care and extra demands on maternity services.Midwives are facing increasing pressure with chronic staff shortages, the ongoing baby boom and increasing numbers of complications in pregnancy. Combined, these challenges are making it harder to deliver a high standard of care to women and their children and mean that despite increases in the number of NHS midwives, maternity units are still short staffed.
