The RCM regularly responds to consultations from the NHS, governments and other organisations on issues that affect maternity services

Our responses aim to represent members' views and provide an expert midwifery perspective to influence decision makers.

Below are some of the consultations affecting maternity services, midwives, maternity support workers, pregnant women and new mums across the UK. We encourage you to also have your say.
