Delayed Cord Clamping

Midwife Amanda Burleigh has championed and contributed to massive changes to maternity protocol for delayed cord clamping. 
I recently was privileged to attend a study session where she presented her case. I was thoroughly fascinated and gripped by her presentation.
Having been a midwife myself for 20 years, what Amanda Burleigh was suggesting was quite a scientific turn around from what I had been taught, as well as what was considered the norm in intrapartum care...most umbilical cords cut and clamped quickly post birth.
Just goes to show.... in life.....just because something has always been done that way, does not mean that it is necessarily the optimal way! 
I really admire the determination of this midwife!

Client choices...facilitated through using part funding by NHS

Patients should be able to go private by topping up NHS funds

The above articel is interesting....

For several years I have thought that this would be such an ideal opportunity for "choice"...what ever the health services/provisions that a tax paying patient may require at that point in time

As an Independent Midwife I try to help clients to get the best from their chosen NHS maternity service....however, it would be utterly fantastic if my clients could use their "allocated" NHS maternity fund, to part fund their choice to use the midwifery services I offer as an Independent Midwife, as an alternative to the NHS.

You never know...it may come about one day!​
