The twelfth episode in the series of Maternity and Midwifery Hour focused on supporting women and birthing people to choose where and how to give birth to their babies. Since COVID-19 we have witnessed restrictions placed on women’s choices through the withdrawal of home birth services, closure of midwifery units and banning the use of water for labour and birth.
This episode of the Maternity & Midwifery Hour – proudly supported by MATFLIX – focused on supporting women's choices.
Host Sue Macdonald (Co-editor, Mayes Midwifery textbook) was joined by Dr Sheena Byrom OBE (Consultant Midwife and Director, All4Maternity) and Dr Lucia Rocca-Ihenacho (Lecturer and Researcher, Centre for Maternal and Child Health Research, School of Health Sciences, City, University of London). In this special Maternity & Midwifery Hour, Sue, Sheena and Lucia provide up-to-date information and discussion on COVID-19 and pregnancy as well as Leadership in a crisis.
