One to One Midwives Claims

Posted on August 2nd 2019

Who are One to One Midwives?

One to One Midwives is a midwife service which offered NHS care to mothers-to-be, specialising predominantly in home births. The service launched in 2011, covering a wide range of areas across the North West of England.

The purpose of the service was to allow a mother-to-be to be allocated a personal midwife, who would then be contactable 24/7 throughout the woman’s pregnancy, up to and including birth and postnatal care.

However, on 31st July 2019, they announced that they were going into administration and have suddenly left over a thousand pregnant women without midwives.
