    We are very excited to announce that One to One Midwives has agreed to do a Q&A with you lovely lot! If you haven't heard about them before then here is a little bit about them. On the night they will be taking questions about the caseloading model and about the service.

    So if you have ever thought about being a case loading midwife, are interested in continuity of care, are thinking about your options post qualification or even just plain curious then please come along! Debi, a One to One caseloading midwife will be with us answering your questions in our live forum event.

    7.30pm on 30th November.

    See you there!!

    One to One Midwives

    The Service:

    One to One midwives is a free NHS funded service which offers personalised care to all women in their care.
    Mothers and midwives work in partnership throughout the entire pregnancy and postnatal period to achieve a positive birth experience. Our philosophy is entrenched in the normality of birth, promoting home birth as a real choice for all low-risk women.

    Due to the nature of service providing high quality one to one care, our midwives have the opportunity to practice the art and science of their profession in its purest sense. Our unique model of care enables midwives to work autonomously - providing a flexible service that meets the needs of mothers and ensures a work/life balance for them too.

    One to One developed this new approach to NHS-commissioned maternity care because we believe that every woman has the right to enjoy a more satisfying pregnancy, birth and postnatal experience, with their own personal midwife throughout.

    Case loading model:

    Several of our midwifery teams work to a case loading model of care which enables them to work flexibly and autonomously by putting them in complete control of their own diary management. This means that they are able to provide a flexible service that meets the needs of women whilst also enabling them to design a work/life balance that best suits their individual lifestyle.

    If you have any questions regarding how the case loading model works in practice, and what the benefits of working within such a framework are, our very own Debi, a case loading midwife based in Warrington, will be hosting a live Q&A on November 30th to answer your questions.

    I've always thought it was a good thing but I have seen cases to the contrary. One example was when a midwife transferring a lady was directed to what was thought to be an empty bed in the middle of the night. She got there to find a partner had drawn the curtains and got in the bed and was snoring away in there.

    I always emphasise that one person can stay. Doesn't have to be dad. And sometimes it might be worth having someone else for that bit. Say like mum and partner for labour. Sister for overnight stay.
