This website is an invaluable resource for new and expectant families and provides an extension of a DVD produced in Worcestershire through collaborative working between the County Council and the Acute Hospitals Trust.
The content was created by experts within maternity care:
Following focus groups with families across Worcestershire Children's Centres, we identified their wishes and needs for information.
The idea for ensuring women were aware of how the body works in relation to pregnancy, labour and birth came from the findings of Tracey's PhD research at University of Central Lancashire.
Following its success and nomination of an RCM national award this website has been created.
This website and the DVD would not have been possible without the families, children's centre staff, midwives, the local branch of the NCT, nursery nurses and maternity/family support workers who took part in the filming.
To you we express our gratitude.
