In Scotland, ‘maternity’ usually means whole pregnancy, labour and birth and baby’s first few hours or days.
NHS Scotland’s maternity guide is Ready Steady Baby. It’s for everyone looking for information about pregnancy, labour and birth and very early parenthood. There’s also a page about how Covid-19 is affecting the way maternity care is delivered just now.
Royal College for Obstetrics and Gynaecology (RCOG) has some videos for parents about Covid-19 and pregnancy care.
Since women can’t attend antenatal classes just now, the Scottish Government has arranged for Solihull Approach Antenatal online courses to be free.
Ann Holmes, Chief Midwifery Officer for Scotland, has written a blog about Using technology to support maternity care – during Covid-19 and beyond. For example, more appointments are happening using NHS Near Me video calls, Florence (text messages), BadgerNet (electronic maternity records) and some women and families are being supported to monitor their blood pressure and urine at home.
The facets needed to deliver quality care through the National Maternity Network are being developed. This is an early draft.
If you have ideas about the different facets (parts) of maternity care we should include, email your ideas to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
