The Citywide 1:1 service from Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, won the RCM Award for Excellence in Maternity Care for their Breech Birth Service.
The project aims to ensure better choice for women about how they give birth when their baby is in the breech position.
In collaboration with obstetricians, the midwives developed a tailored service for women expecting a breech birth.
The aim of the service is to ensure that women are able to make a fully informed choice about how they want to give birth, either to plan for a normal birth or a delivery by caesarean section. The service includes the use of information films donated by other breech mothers and extensive counselling from the Sheffield Breech Team.
