This webinar presents observations about the prison environment and systems, and findings from interviews with women who are currently in prison and those who have experienced birthing their babies whilst in detention. This research is being carried out at the University of Hertfordshire covering prisons in England and is an opportunity to explore the role of the midwife caring for childbearing women in prison which can be multifaceted and emotionally demanding.

Lauren Petrie is a member of the Maternity Bereavement Experience Measure (MBEM) project team and she shares her experience of losing her daughter, and the importance of gathering parent feedback to improve the services.
