Maternity Continuity of Carer


The continuity of carer model is a way of delivering maternity care so that childbearing women and birthing people receive dedicated support from the same midwifery team throughout their pregnancy, birth and transition to parenthood.

Lancashire and South Cumbria Maternal and Newborn Alliance are committed to ensuring the provision of evidence-informed, family-centred models of midwifery across all maternity services.

Relational Midwifery Continuity of Carer has been shown to transform outcomes and safety for those who use maternity, offering a more positive and personal experience. MCoC was also the single biggest request of women heard during the latest National Maternity Review.
