Mid­wives speak out

Lennox Herald - - NEWS -

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.”
