THE HIGHLIGHTS: Preventing post-traumatic stress through compassionate care

The role of midwives in preventing post-traumatic stress through compassionate care in the context of COVID-19.

The eighth episode of the Maternity & Midwifery Hour – proudly supported by MATFLIX –focuses on the need for compassionate midwifery care for women and for midwives, identifying two separate pioneering research studies.

Host Sue Macdonald (Co-editor, Mayes Midwifery textbook) was joined by Dr Jenny Patterson (Midwife, Edinburgh Napier University) and Dr Diane Ménage (Lecturer in Midwifery, De Montfort University). Diane and Jenny present their implications for practice, the profession and, in the context of COVID-19, how compassion can be an effective intervention to reduce the long term impact on women and families, and on midwives themselves.
