Hosted by WeMidwives using #WeMidwives

This chat is guest hosted by @nmcnews @maryrenfrew

This #WeMidwives tweetchat is being held in conjunction with the NMC and will help inform the NMC's drafting process into redefining the standards that students will need to meet in order to join the midwifery profession.  

The NMC state:

"Midwives in the UK are well trained, qualified and regulated. But the demands on modern midwives are constantly changing, with the need to deal with more wide-ranging challenges than ever before. The profile of pregnant women is changing, their birthing choices have never been more diverse and this (and more) is placing greater demands on what a midwife needs to know and be prepared for.

To make sure that the midwives of the future are ready for the challenges ahead, we are reviewing and working to future-proof the standards of proficiency for registered midwives. The new standards will outline what is required of student midwives before they can join the register and begin practising as qualified midwives."

(NMC 2018)

To find out more about this work please click HERE

During this #WeMidwives discussion aims to explore the following questions:

      

1.            What are the knowledge and skills the future midwife should have at the start of their career?

2.            What role should midwives play in public health?

3.            What challenges do you think the midwife 2030 will face that are different to today?

4.            Midwives are leaders in maternity care - how should this evolve?

5.            So far we’ve heard  a lot from people that communication is key – what communication skills do you think midwives should learn?

6.            What are your hopes for midwifery in the future?

@WeMidwives I think the main skill is to be able to listen, and to be able to make space for what the woman is saying. We leave uni with so much knowledge, it’s only natural to want to put that into practice but if we cannot listen we cannot effectively be with woman. #wemidwives

@WeMidwives #wemidwives I think women want pregnancy and birth to be treated as public health issues rather than medical issues or lack of disease. Normal birth IS a public health issue, so is breastfeeding.

@Midwife_VC A1: Yes, depending on the outcome of the @nmcnews review there may need to be a pre-course completed prior to starting your training or add an additional year for training. But it's only a suggestion as don't know outcome of @maryrenfrew review. #WeMidwives

@nmcnews Absolutely, if can recognise it's not normal physiology can then refer on / ask for help / support even if you don't know what the "exact" issue / diagnosis is. Another imp. point is we don't need to (or indeed can) know everything that's what colleagues/ MDT are for #WeMidwives

@WeMidwives I think often public messages/campaigns can be tailored to meet individual needs. Midwives have to be able to recognise the woman and her families level of need and offer information, specific public health messages etc. accordingly #WeMidwives

@DOckendenLtd Donna, I totally agree, it's too late to 1st enter the home postnatally. What's more scary is with change in provision of service inc P/N clinics, there is the risk of never setting foot in the home. I So much can be learnt from home visit & families are more relaxed. #WeMidwives

Q5??: The evidence shows that women are also more likely to have a positive birth outcome from continuous, supportive care. Respectful Maternity Care is a core component of midwifery practise that must be ingrained in the profession. (2/2) #WeMidwives

@PICU_Scot Yes, and to open learning opportunities (such as journal clubs etc) for all staff members. Working & learning together and supporting colleagues makes a huge difference to staff morale & patient care ?? #WeMidwives

@WeMidwives 6: I hope that we are able to find ways to support our midwives to reduce the heartbreaking loss of midwives from the profession. I also hope that we are able to maintain our autonomy and skills in physiological birth, to be able to give women full choice. #wemidwives
