Midwives speak out
The leading midwives union believes the right resources must be available across Scotland to ensure expectant mums are getting the care they deserve.
The strong message was conveyed by the Royal College of Midwives in their annual state of maternity services report published yesterday (Tuesday).
This comes on the back of plans to close the midwife-led maternity facility at the Vale Hospital and transfer all births to Paisley’s Royal Alexandra Hospital.
Mary Ross-Davie, Director for Scotland at the Royal College of Midwives, said: “What is important is that we have the right numbers of staff and resources to give all of these women the best possible care.”
