BAPM Framework for Practice launched

BAPM has  launched the Framework for Practice ‘Neonatal Support for Freestanding Midwifery Led Units and Home Births’.

This document is an updated version of ‘Neonatal Support for Stand Alone Midwifery Led Units (MLUs): A Framework for Practice (2011)’.

This document refers specifically to the provision of neonatal support for births within settings that are not co-located with obstetric services and where there is no immediate access to neonatal or paediatric staff. It is intended as a framework to inform development of local, regional and network guidelines for the rare instances where additional support for the baby is required.
