New Community Midwife Bags

Thirty Community Midwife Bags landed with midwives at North West Anglia Foundation Trust thanks to funding from Cambridgeshire and Peterborough CCG.

A Community Midwife Bag contains everything a community midwife would need for births at home, including any emergencies. The bag is designed with infection control in mind with everything easily and quickly accessible.

Liz Phillips, Maternity and Neonatal Commissioning and Transformation Programme Manager, at Cambridgeshire and Peterborough CCG, said, “We’re delighted that our first specially designed community midwife bags are already in use by our hospital partners, which we hope will help make sure that every mum and baby has the best possible birth experience.”

Kerry Fletcher, Lead Midwife for Community Services, said: “We are really excited to receive the Baby Lifeline Bags through the Local Maternity Neonatal System. The bags are equipped really well and organised into sections, making it easy to find anything you need at a homebirth. We are now able to reduce the number of bags the Community Midwives carry when on call, making on calls much easier.”
