Too many midwives are struggling and leaving the profession.
This is having a devastating impact on the NHS and families.
We need to take action now.
Mental health problems quadrupled in NHS staff during the first wave of the covid-19 pandemic.
ALMOST HALF OFF ALL NHS STAFF FELT UNWELL AS A RESULT OF WORK RELATED STRESS, A FIGURE WHICH HAS INCREASED YEAR ON YEAR SINCE 2017.
ANXIETY, STRESS AND DEPRESSION ARE THE MOST FREQUENT REASONS FOR SICK LEAVE, WITH MIDWIVES TAKING 15 DAYS A YEAR ON AVERAGE
for every 30 newley qualified midwives, 29 leave and many intend to do so in the next 12 months
We need more midwives and we need them to be healthy and happy so that they can provide quality care for years to come.
