You will have the same midwife throughout your pregnancy, birth and postnatal care, helping you to build a trusting and confident relationship with your midwife. This is called ‘Continuity of care’ and is a research-based approach to providing midwifery care to women and babies.
Continuity of care has been shown to have a positive impact on the health and wellbeing of women and babies. Current research has demonstrated that if a women receives continuity of care by a midwife she knows and trusts she is:
● More likely to have a normal birth
● More likely to have a positive birth experience
● More likely to successfully breastfeed her baby
● Less likely to use pain relief
● Less likely to have a caesarean birth
● Less likely to have a premature baby
● Less likely for her baby to be admitted to special care
● Less likely to suffer postnatal depression
