Midwives are usually the first and main contact for women and birthing people during their pregnancy, throughout labour and the early postnatal period. They are responsible for providing care and helping them to make informed choices about their care.
About the Midwifery Practice and Maternity Care Priority Setting Partnership
Run by the Royal College of Midwives (RCM), the Midwifery Practice and Maternity Care Priority Setting Partnership (PSP) will work with women and birthing people and their families and friends, service user organisations, midwives and maternity support workers to identify the unanswered questions about all areas or aspects of midwifery practice and agree which are the most important for research to address.
The PSP is a major project of the current RCM Research and Development strategy
The initial survey opened in January 2024.
