If so, Clinks and Birth Companions would love to hear from you as part of our latest research project A window of opportunity: understanding the experiences and needs of pregnant women and new mothers in contact with the criminal justice system (CJS) in the community.
While we all continue to grapple with the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic it is now time to look beyond a crisis response to the work that should be done as services evolve again. That's why we've developed a new position statement setting out our priorities for pregnant women and new mothers facing multiple disadvantage in the coming months.
Birth Companions has developed new guidance for midwives working with women experiencing multiple disadvantage during the COVID-19 pandemic. Created in collaboration with Consultant Midwife Tamsin Bicknell, this resource draws on recent research to offer insights into women’s needs, and key considerations for their maternity care in these challenging times.
