Nationwide, the number of women with significant fear of birth is rising. Buckinghamshire Healthcare Trust identified that there are a growing number of women reporting significant fear of birth.

However, many of these women were not disclosing this fear and were not being referred for additional support until it was too late in pregnancy to provide effective support for them. Louise Randall is a Consultant Midwife Trainee, in the Thames Valley, currently working at Buckinghamshire Healthcare Trust and she presented this webinar covering the process of designing and implementing a tool to help identify women early in pregnancy, to ensure a more timely referral for psychological therapies and supportive birth planning.
