    “Reaching out'involving fathers' in is a new publication being launched today at the Royal College of Midwives Annual Conference. Jointly produced by the RCM, the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists and the Fatherhood Institute, it is supposed to “increase engagement with fathers, and encourage them to be involved in their partner’s maternity care.” The guide offers tips like:“Make fathers feel welcome.

In a bid to bring the cor anglais to the fore, she has released a solo CD, entitled Cor! and she will perform live in the studio.
