On Saturday 15 October a wave of light swept the internet when thousands of people flooded social media with pictures of candles to remember the babies that they have lost. This event signifies the end of Baby Loss Awareness Week which aims to break the silence that is associated with baby loss in pregnancy and infancy.
In this session, our speakers discussed the final Ockenden report, the Midwifery Perspective, the Board Perspective, and the Wider national initiatives - Monitoring May.
The much anticipated final Ockenden report was published on 30 March 2020. The final report sets out the findings of the review into care provided to 1,486 families, and sets out a blueprint for safe maternity care.
Our speakers looked at the legal framework for maternal mental health issues, the obstetrician’s perspective & the psychiatrist’s perspective.
In this Shared Insights session we provided an overview of the implementation of the Ockenden Immediate and Essential actions.
