Independent review of maternity services at
Shrewsbury and Telford Hospital NHS Trust

Carolyn Romer

Consultant Midwife (Maternal Medicine)

I am a leader and expert midwifery practitioner in the care of women with complex, high-risk pregnancies, as defined by the presence of significant underlying co-morbidities. Working in partnership with the obstetric consultant lead for maternal medicine we provide an integrated ‘wrap around’ team approach to women’s maternity care, through the development of specialist midwifery advanced practice roles. All our care is delivered within a holistic social model of care. This integrated approach has positively contributed to excellent maternity outcomes and directly improved women’s experiences of their care. The development of this service has only been possible due to the established, mutually respectful, relational partnership working among all health professionals across the Trust.
