Call You and Yours

More than 3,000 new midwifery training places are to be offered in England. The show is asking listeners about their experience of maternity care. 03700 100 444 [standard rates].

We're asking: what's been your experience of maternity care?
The Health Secretary in England, Jeremy Hunt, is announcing plans to train more than 3000 extra midwives over 4 years. He'll also promise mothers that, by 2021, most will be seen by the same team of midwives throughout labour, pregnancy and birth.
What's been your experience-- whether as a family expecting a baby, having already had your baby or, perhaps, as a midwife yourself?
Among our guests will be Health Minister Jackie Doyle-Price.
