Intelligent Fetal Assessment
Health Secretary renews promise to reduce avoidable poorest birth outcomes. He brings forward his target to reduce stillbirth and brain damage outcomes by half before 2025. The strategy is to increase the number of midwives.
The Royal College of Midwives report that just ONE additional midwife is added for every 100 midwives trained. Why ? Because for every 100 that qualify, 99 leave. It seems reasonable to assume that those entering the service are less experienced than those leaving.
More midwives are certainly part of the solution. But so is greater support of frontline staff and increasing their expertise with the latest technology. K2 have spent the last 30 years developing such technology. It is available today. INFANT-Guardian®
