New Choices for Birth website

This week I received notice that MIDIRS (Midwives Information and Resource Service) has launched a new Choices for Birth website.

"MIDIRS is a Bristol based not-for-profit organisation offering a complete information service to all health professionals, non-statutory agencies or anyone involved in the care of women and their babies during and after pregnancy. Its organisational mission is 'to be the leading international information resource relating to childbirth and infancy, disseminating this information as widely as possible to assist in the improvement of maternity care'. Over 32,870 customers worldwide trust MIDIRS services to support their education, practice and professional development. Through a continuing commitment to information access, MIDIRS aims to help health professionals provide mothers and babies with the best possible care."

From the press release:

"Leading maternity information resource service, MIDIRS, today announced the launch of its new consumer website Choices for Birth which focuses on communicating key information surrounding pregnancy, birth and the postnatal period to women and their families. As the name reflects, Choices for Birth aims to provide women with the most recent evidence-based information relating to the pre-conception, pregnancy, birth and postnatal periods, that will assist them in making the right choices for themselves, their babies and families."
