This…is an innovative and potentially global influencing programme. It is an important piece of work in an area of care prone to serious failures with terrible consequences for everyone involved. This project makes a real difference to outcomes for mothers and babies while also increasing the confidence of midwives at the same time.
Judges’ commendation from the Health Service Journal Patient Safety Awards
I feel the standard of training is excellent and will no doubt improve outcomes for babies but also confidence for midwives providing intrapartum care in low-risk settings.

“Absolutely brilliant work, well done! In so many countries, especially low-income countries where operative birth rates are soaring, intermittent auscultation (and the sight of meconium) is enough to call a C-section. Good intelligent auscultation can save many lives.”
