star this property answer text <p>The National Health Service locally should ensure that appropriate facilities and services are in place to support bereaved parents following the death of a baby. In line with the Nursing and Midwifery Council’s Standards of proficiency for pre-registration midwifery education, all midwives should be proficient in providing care for women who have suffered pregnancy loss, stillbirth or neonatal death. Health Education England has agreed to work with partners to ensure that pre and post registration training in perinatal mental health is available to enable specialist staff to be available to every birthing unit by 2017.</p><p>To assist NHS commissioners and providers, the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists’ Standards for Gynaecology and Standards for Maternity sets out clear standards for the level of care provided to help women and their partners experiencing pregnancy loss, including the availability of skilled staff to support parents following a stillbirth or miscarriage. A number of trusts now employ specialist bereavement midwives to provide this support.</p><p>To further assist NHS maternity services, NHS Improving Quality published ‘A review of support available for loss in early and late pregnancy’ in February 2014, which highlights areas of good practice and additional sources of support, such as the stillbirth and neonatal death charity, Sands.</p><p>Local NHS maternity care providers are responsible for ensuring parents receive appropriate information on bereavement support and services following the death of a baby. To complement information provided locally, information on support for parents after a stillbirth is available on the NHS Choices website at:</p><p>www.nhs.uk/Conditions/Stillbirth/Pages/Getting-help.aspx</p>

This guideline does not seek to define acceptable caesarean rates. Rather it recommends that if a woman requests a caesarean section without clinical indication, a discussion about the risks and benefits of caesarean section compared with vaginal birth should take place with members of the maternity team, including the midwife, obstetrician and anaesthetist. This will enable all aspects of her wishes and circumstances to be taken into account and ensure the risks and benefits to the mother and baby are properly understood.</p><p> </p> more like this
