International Day of the Midwife 2017
The survey shows that during the first 6 weeks after giving birth mums have a greater need for emotional support and their partners, mothers and midwives are their biggest support.
Receiving conflicting advice can be very normal. From this survey we see that midwives make a positive difference to mum’s confidence. Conflicting advice isn’t necessarily a scary thing, mum gets to choose what advice best works for them. Every experience is different.
We would like to acknowledge the overwhelmingly positive responses highlighting the amazing job midwives do in supporting new mums.
