Pilot projects for new mums to start in Bordon

Have your say

A NEW scheme has been launched to give pregnant women more choice on antenatal care and childbirth.

Midwives working with GP surgeries in Bordon have been chosen to be the first area in Hampshire to pilot the Maternity Choice and Personalisation Pioneer programme.

The project aims to increase the knowledge and choices available to pregnant women around antenatal care and place of birth. More pilot sites are due to follow shortly.

Dr Lesley Ayling, GP commissioning lead for the project, said: ‘We want to ensure every woman’s experience of pregnancy and childbirth is as good as it can be and this programme will help us to do that by increasing the choices available.’

The schemes are due to run for 18 months.
