The State of Maternity Services Report provides an update, highlighting the very latest developments in our maternity services across England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.


The report does not dwell on or analyse structural changes within the NHS or the political battles and tussles that have taken place during the year. Instead it focuses just on the latest available statistics, revealing what is happening on the frontline of care. How many babies are being born? How many midwives are there to help these babies safely into the world? Are we training enough new midwives to deal with the changes of the future?
