Continuity of care
Continuity of care is at the heart of everything we do. This is because of the improved outcomes for women and babies and is why it’s considered the ‘gold standard’ of maternity care. The benefits of continuity of care are well supported by research – women are more likely to have a spontaneous vaginal birth and less likely to use medical pain relief. Click here to read more.
Whether you choose a traditional continuity of care model, antenatal and postnatal package or shared care experiences, you will form a strong and trusting relationship with your midwife. Your midwife will coordinate your whole continuity experience and you will have access to your midwife and/or CLM midwifery team at any time of day for care, advice and support. You will play an active role in your care and be provided with information and resources to help you
