A report by the Royal College of Midwives revealed a shortage of midwives in Wales.
It found that between 2001 and 2011 the number of babies born in Wales increased by just under 5,000. In comparison, the number of full time midwives rose by just 35.
To put it simply we need more midwives. We also need to at least sustain the proposed increase in the number of midwives in training in years to come. Any further cuts in numbers will adversely affect the quality of maternity care that women receive.
