Why is it important?

The continuity of carer model of care for midwifery is set to roll out exponentially. However, setting up and sustaining midwifery teams primed to deliver this model is a new process for many healthcare professionals.


Writing this article gave me an opportunity to share my work over the last few years. I am passionate about continuity of care and have seen the positive impact it has had on women. I have a strong desire to see it succeed in other settings so I hope this article is helpful to emerging teams.
