Motion text

That this House welcomes the Government's pledge to improve NHS maternity services in England; notes the commitments that women will have one named midwife who will oversee their care during pregnancy and after they have had their baby, that every woman will have one-to-one midwife care during labour and birth and that parents-to-be will get the best choice about where and how to give birth; further notes that women who have postnatal depression or who suffer a miscarriage, stillbirth or the death of a baby will get more support from the NHS; and calls on the Government to ensure enough midwives are working in the NHS in England to honour these very positive commitments whilst continuing to cope with the ongoing baby boom.
