Continuity of care is a research-based approach to providing midwifery care to women and babies. You will have the same midwife throughout your entire pregnancy, labour and delivery and postnatal care, helping you to build a trusting and confident relationship with your midwife.
This has been shown to have a positive impact on the health and wellbeing of mum and bub. Benefits of this model of care include a more positive experience during pregnancy and being more likely to have a normal birth. Current research has demonstrated that if a women receives continuity of care for pregnancy, birth and post-birth through a midwife she knows and trusts she is:
- More likely to have a normal birth
- More likely to have a more positive birth experience
- More likely to successfully breastfeed her baby
- Less likely to use pain relief
- Less likely to have a caesarean birth
- Less likely to have a pre-term baby
- Less likely for her baby to be admitted to special care
- Less likely to suffer post natal depression
