Friday 16th November Day Five of Baby Week

Maternity Event

At 12.30 professionals from the maternity services pitched up a stall to talk to public about their maternity experiences, from obesity to breast feeding. From multiples to physical health and fitness we welcomed the pregnant ladies and families with babies to talk about their experiences. Along side this we had Rt Hon Hilary Benn to open (the closing) and ran a series of video’s behind us on the big screen. These included – Emma Roger Winston Churchill Fellow on her travelling research on Doula’s. The LMS (Local Maternity System) and Home birth videos.
