Midwifery continuity of carer webinar - Shared screen with gallery view
Who can see your viewing activity?
will we get copy of slides ?
and/or the recording?
HI, thank you for this, very interesting. Did you say that the continuity midwives worked in a buddy system? So two RMs rather than a larger team?
Please could you confirm the size of the POPPIE team
Hi, wonderful work and insights. Would love to have a recording, if possible. Thanks.
Thank you Cristina.
Lovely to see you Manuela
Michele Harris Tafri
Yes a recording and the slides will be shared.
really good to know
Hi, What was the geographical distance covered by the team? How far did they have to travel for visits? thanks
Each midwife had quite a small geographical area which was shared with a buddy, no further than a ten minute drive or so
Three midwives did visits by bike
It is such a great way of working, We are just in the process of discussing linking health visitors into each team to continue a continuity theme across child health too.
Also interested in the geographical footprint of the team and how women were chosen to be cared for by the team or not. Was the team based in an area of high deprivation and/or high Black, Asian and Mixed ethnicity population?
E biking has become a thing for Community midwives in Switzerland :-)
Have many births per year for this trust?
Can I ask about caseload size per annum per WTE?
How many on calls did the Mws do each week?
Thank you Manuela.
Around 36 per anum but we often found our caseloads quite a bit smaller as we didn't always recruit the full caseload quota
Thank you sam :)
Really enjoying listening to this. Have you any evaluations from learners?
So sorry to hear of your experience Jessica, thank you for sharing with us
Poppie team do you work from a base or are you at individual GPS? Thanks
We were all based at the hospital
I am from Bulgaria originally (London-based) and this is normality (Continuity of Care). I see the same GP, the same OB/GYN etc. And it's much easier and much nicer as you develop a good relationship and trust. They say a GP to a patient it's like a scalpel to a surgeon, hence I think this should be normalised.Thank you for sharing your story, Jessica...
Thankyou Jessica for sharing your experience
Thank you for sharing, Jessica
Thank you for sharing your story Jessica.
Thank you so much Jessica. Very informative and touching.
Jessica and Poppie team thank you for coming to talk to us and lovely to see you all
Michele Harris Tafri
Thanks very much Jessica - you're a great speaker
Well done Jessica. As always, hearing the 'lived experience' brings the topic alive - why CoC SO important. Very powerful story. Thank you.Gill @WhoseShoes
welcome Helen and looking for wards to hearing more about your trial
Really helpful findings, thanks Hannah
Really interesting, especially the value of prioritising continuity in areas with high social deprivation, rather than based on disclosed risk factors. Thank you Hannah.
such incredible work and data, I need to listen again to really process this all!
Thank you Hannah, this is so relevant
Why are women still not being listened too !!!!!
thank you, look forward to reading the full papers
The findings of reduced low birth weight is incredibly exciting - as low birth weight is a predictor of long-term t is associated with poorer long-term health and educational outcomes (Marmot 2010).
....as low birth weight is associated with poorer long-term health and educational outcomes. Sorry!
I am enjoying this deep dive into continuity of carer
Thank you for sharing these findings, Hannah.
Fantastic work Hannah, well done 👏👏
thank you Hannah so much insight
what does place-based mean here Hannah? Place in NHS England sense? Or place of birth? Thanks
Impressive work. Thanks a lot.
Brilliant work work Hannah, thank you so much for sharing
In our area community-based teams have been pulled away from their centres and have become removed from the communities they serve. It's great to see new work highlighting the value of place-based, community integrated care. Thanks Hannah!
Very interesting and helpful. Thank you Hannah
Brilliant Hannah- very interesting.. well done!
Thank you Katie.
Fantastic Hannah! Fiona Laird is with me and is so happy that you evidence supports her perinatal mental health team based in the community looking after 500 women a year with excellent outcomes.
Thanks Katie :) xx
Thank you do you have Maternity support workers in the team and are there specific touchpoints/roles they contribute to the model ?
Thank you to all for sharing such interesting information. I am a student midwife in my 3rd year and have thoroughly enjoyed my community placement with a continuity team in South Manchester. I am currently writing my dissertation on midwives' experiences of working within a CofC model and I really hope this model of care becomes more common place.
Brilliant to hear directly from the research teams - and service users/ HCPs involved - on this important topic. So many important findings. Thanks to Jane for leading this session and for everyone involved - we surely have a research capacity on this in the UK that we can be truly proud of! Question for Zenab: how can we ensure that members of MVPs across England have sufficient knowledge about CofCer so that all MVP members can best encourage and support implementation rollout at the local level? Jo, AIMS
This is Fiona Laird: our midwives have weekly clinical supervision with clinical psychologist
I could not agree more Victoria!
absolutely agree Vicki, need community spaces and be part of local communities again
really good to hear Victoria ! :>)
I lead a CoC team ofr Young Parents in Eat Sussex.
well said, Victoria
We need leaders Like Vicky
Great to see you @Victoria
thank you Victoria!
managers with. caseload definitely helps
Thank you Vicki! 🙂
Thank you so much, this is really interesting
Victoria you are the leader we all need! absolutely wonderful demonstration of compassionate leadership. When people like you lead, we WILL follow!!!
Fantastic Victoria - a leader who has not lost touch with the fundamentals of the midwifery. A role model to follow - thank you
I lead a CoC team for young parents and completely agree with Victoria. My role involves working clinically and supporting my amazing team with the difficulties associated with being invested in the vulnerable families they care for. We love working in this way. I hope the future is CoC for all!

If you Tweet about this event we're using the hashtag #CoMC Thanks
Can we share screenshots of the slides?
but check with hannah as some of her slides are unpublished
I have to go to another meeting now but if you tag me in twitter - I would love to retweet these tweets as they are really fab!
I was a midwife alongside Katie partaking in Hannah's research and now, as a safeguarding midwife at a Trust that has only just started introducing a CoC model in a very deprived area, I really notice the impact a lack of CoC has, not only for the women and families, but also for the wider MDT when working with families with significant social issues. An allocated, named midwife who knows the family and knows the concerns is so, so invaluable within that MDT.
I noticed we have not touch upon fathers and partners
I wonder (as someone working in a Place/ICS context doing patient voice work) what impact CORE20 plus 5 will have? My fear is that ICS CEOs think that the LMN are 'doing maternity' rather than seeing that they need to know about it, give support. Silo thinking? I don't know, but worry I see it in my ICS area.

amazing Carla, thank you!
wonderful to hear about LEAP in depth!
I missed your email address Carla, could you share again?
Thank you Carla.
Wow!! Amazing work!!
please get in touch! https://www.leaplambeth.org.uk/
Yes, this is such a valuable asset. Showcasing high-quality midwifery care within a valuable community resource bringing inter-generational benefits for health promotion.
Thats amazing - Well done Issy and team!
Very interesting findings
wow Issy! incredible
Wow amazing results
Thank you Issy.
Jo, thank you for your comments and question.The following could help:Invite MVP Chairs to take part in real co-productive activities;Invite them at strategic meetings with different stakeholders;Share as much information as possible;Hold webinars to specifically address this;MVP Chairs to be appropriately supported to undertake their role. We are at ChelWest. But, I am aware of the discrepancies across the country.
Thank you for sharing this Shakti.
Thank you Shakti!
As a previous IM of many years and community midwife prior to that, I have always been an ardent supported of continuity of carer. It seems that as Midwives, we demonstrate the value of this time and time again. It's absolutely fantastic it is being illustrated with such fantastic research too. My worry is that it seems that these extremely valuable services are often the first to suffer when cutbacks/shortages of staff happen to the detriment of women and families supported by these projects.
This has been so encouraging and impressive thank you all very much
so enjoying this , but unfortunately have to leave . just want to confirm will be able to watch back and have all presentations .thank you very firstname.lastname@example.org email@example.com
Fabulous discussion and really encouraging. We are trying to commence a MCoC model in our area. It is one of the most disadvantaged in our state, so seeing these results shows we are on the right track.
The LEAP caseload was shortlisted for RCM awards this year for partnership working <3 Fantastic midwives
Agree @ Vicky Robinson
The presentations are very complex-is there a possibility to create take home messages ?
