Elsewhere midwives in Tower Hamlets have used frequent video appts, kept tongue tie services running and have partnered with children’s centres to provide evidence-based resources and information to women through virtual groups.

The practice of colostrum harvesting from 37 weeks gestation was debated too. This is a vast amount obviously - but midwives’ practice differed. Thoughts? 4/6

👇🏻An important read.Those who know me, know my position on the bundle and this critical review by and articulates what I’ve been saying for yonks and why blanket imposition is inappropriate. We should be striving for evidence based individualised care.

1/2 Coming late to this important discussion, I’ve been off Twitter for a couple of days. Lots of good counsel already in the replies. Maybe just to add - there are many barriers to good midwifery, but more and more strong positive developments too

2/2 Rest, reflection essential when it feels too hard. Keep learning: seeing what doesn’t work is as important as what does. Use/talk about the evidence. Find support:lots of it in these replies. Pace yourself: consider how to move to work in a different context in the future.

Agree. Surprised recently when another (married male) international breech expert playfully called me 'Honey' 3x in post-teaching dinner together, and exclaimed that I was a 'cheap date' when I paid for dinner (because it was being funded -- defo not a date!)

💓In my 10 years of supporting mothers to feed their babies, I am always in AWE of them. 💓 I admire their tenacity and their determination. I have shared happiness, tears, hugs & the hand holding as long as needed. I am truly grateful 🙏

I’m obsessed with breastfeeding! . Not if people do it, as the choice agenda creates a false dichotomy, when so many peoples ‘choices’ are constrained. I’m obsessed with it politically, culturally, scientifically, socially, emotionally, sexually, environmentally etc

Gentleheel heel prick incisor - available from Central Medical Supplies - allows you to secure sufficient blood samples first time. Its unique cutting action gives a more consistent incision, resulting in a lower repeat rate & less pain for babies.
