Maternity Care: Building Relationships Really Does Save Lives

Griffith University via FutureLearn


Build relationships in maternity care and save lives

Research unequivocally shows that providing a woman with the same midwife before, during and after birth, results in less preterm birth, fetal death and other complications.

This course explains why we need relationship-based care in maternity services. You’ll discover how to create successful relationships, and how this produces better outcomes for the mother, baby and midwife.

You’ll learn about organisational healthcare models, and what you and your local community can do to contribute to the transformation of maternity care globally.

This course is designed for anyone interested in improving maternity care, including midwives, doctors, other health professionals, planners and policy makers, and consumers of maternity care (parents).
