Mothers-to-be can benefit from first webchat with midwives

MIDWIVES at University Hospital Coventry and Warwickshire will be the first in the NHS to hold a web chat which will give patients access to healthcare advice.

They can be joined online on Friday from 12.30pm to 1.30pm, for a live discussion about all aspects of maternity care and the services available for mothers-to-be.

The webchat is part of a month-long celebration of motherhood and NHS maternity services in Coventry and Rugby called Maternity March.

Carmel McCalmont, head of midwifery, said: “We are delighted to be part of Maternity March and are really looking forward to the series of web chats that are set to take place.

“We hope that people will use this as an opportunity to ask us questions about their pregnancy and birth.”

Qyestions can also be emailed to [email protected] or sent via twitter using the hashtag #maternitymarch beforehand.
