Absolutely yes, to understand the system and how it shapes the way individuals behave within it is crucial. This can really help bridge the theory practice gap and give us greater power to support / empower women and their families through true individualised care!

We need a revaluing, focussing & reculturing of how Midwives are perceived in media & challenge issues head on through strength based reasoning. Blaming systems only covers the underlining value of relationships at the heart of safe, trustworthy, enjoyable, sustainable midwifery.

Agree Eva. We all need to be vigilant about how Midwives are portrayed in the media and respond.

Yes, I know, we all need to be very careful with the details reporters use about midwives. Careless reporting just confuses

Exactly. Thanks Shawn. Such poor reporting and comparisons to prove points & justify changing system.

Great stuff. can you confirm that U.K. new grad mws do not have a requirement to work 2 years prior to caseloading? There is a NZ news article claiming the U.K. system stipulates new grads must do 2yrs hospital. They use this in part to argue for same in NZ!

Rather unfair style of reporting with inaccuracies. Not heard that UK new graduate midwives must work 2yrs in hospital prior to community based practice! Certainly not the case across the U.K. as more new grads opt to work in caseload practices. Poor comparisons, poor journalism

Terribly sad to learn of the fire in Notre Dame cathedral. And ASHAMED that I didn't even know of the devastating fire that engulfed the thousand year-old Meenakshi Temple recently. There was no round-the-clock coverage, no SM lament. Thank you, for letting us know.

Irritating, misinformed, coercive and derogatory. Whatever Megan chooses for her birth place and mode of birth would be criticised and sensationalised. Such poor journalism.
