We’ll hear all about the risk of trauma for midwives as well as the impact this can then have on their interactions with families in their care. Jenny will address the ways the pandemic has increased stress levels and has led to even greater risk for midwives. She’ll also shed light on the ways ensuring care providers are supported and empowered leads to optimal maternity care interactions.
