A new NHS website, Bump Birth and Beyond, has launched in Kent and Medway to help expectant parents make informed choices about their maternity care.
Bump, Birth and Beyond brings together information about local maternity services into one place for the first time, to make it easier for women to find out about ante-natal care, post-natal care and options for giving birth.
The website was developed by the Local Maternity System (LMS), with feedback from local women and families, and working closely with midwives, clinicians, health visitors, local Maternity Voices Partnership representatives and partner organisations. It follows recommendations from the Better Births national review. which sets out a vision for safer, more personalised maternity services in England.
