Support during early labour

The Trust now has a community triage process for women in the latent stages of labour. A woman is now able to contact a health professional by phone to provide support and arrange a home visit to assess and give early labour advice. This has meant that women are now able to stay at home for longer and avoid unnecessary trips to the hospital until they are ready to be admitted (or have their baby at home) where they will have the full support of our midwifery team.
