Abstract

This document aims to help address this gap, by  explaining why Specialist Mental Health Midwives are needed, and what they do. It is intended as a resource for  maternity managers and commissioners looking to introduce or strengthen the Specialist Mental Health Midwife  role in their local service. We hope that it will aid discussions and lead to improvements in local provision.
