ARM National Conference – Is Normal Birth Radical ?

05 November 2021 (12:00 AM) - 06 November 2021 (11:59 PM)
Media reporting of the preliminary Ockenden Report on failings at Shrewsbury and Telford Trusts emphasised promotion of “normal birth ideology” as a major cause of harm to mothers and babies. Similar reports followed the Kirkup Report on the Morecambe Bay Trust leaving midwives and many women demoralised and angry, since the international “Definition of a Midwife” (ICM 2017) includes the understanding that midwives should “optimise the normal biological, psychological, social and cultural processes of childbirth”. We are also aware of the wealth of research supporting improved outcomes for women and babies when physiological processes are facilitated. Our conference seeks to explore the issues and develop a response to the rather incoherent and inaccurate views which have been presented in reporting.
