    12. Changing Times - Supporting Women’s Choices: Dr Sheena Byrom OBE & Dr Lucia Rocca-Ihenacho

    12. Changing Times - Supporting Women’s Choices: Dr Sheena Byrom OBE & Dr Lucia Rocca-Ihenacho

    Featuring:


    Sue Macdonald, Co-editor of Mayes Midwifery
    Dr Lucia Rocca-Ihenacho, Lecturer and Researcher, Centre for Maternal and Child Health Research, School of Health Sciences, City, University of London
    Dr Sheena Byrom OBE, Consultant Midwife and Director, All4Maternity

    Women and birthing people deserve the opportunity to choose where and how to give birth to their babies. It matters. 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.

    Sheena and Lucia will present the evidence and debate why human rights and choice are integral to high quality maternity care and midwives are central to keeping this focus.

    High quality care when a baby dies is essential for the wellbeing of families. With effective tools, knowledge and support midwives can be empowered to address their own emotions and provide the best possible care when the worst happens.

    During this Maternity & Midwifery Hour - to mark Stillbirth and Neonatal Death Awareness month - our speakers will discuss the key principals of bereavement care.

    Clare will focus on how best to support bereaved parents and families in clinical practice. She will share insights from bereaved parents and discuss themes such as sensitive communication, grief and support resources for midwives.

    Marc will talk about the roll out of the National Bereavement Care Pathway (NBCP), a programme of improvement and include an update on recent successes. The 9 Standards of Bereavement Care will also be covered in Marc’s discussion along with details of how your trust can join the NBCP.
