I had a very difficult birth and the thought if less midwives only opens up vulnerable mothers and babies to potential tragedy

I've seen the tiredness and strain on my midwife daughter's face after busy shifts when there are not enough staff and the frustration she feels not being able to give each woman the individual care they are entitled to

To optimise positive outcomes for women and babies both psychologically and physically, we need a strong, supported and well resourced maternity service. Midwives need to be respected, enabled and empowered to do the job they came into the profession to do. Increased funding is essential and will create the potential to transform the health and wellbeing of women, babies, families and ultimately society.
