The end of statutory Supervision of Midwifery

Bridgewater Community Supervisor of Midwives team would like to inform you that due to recent legislative changes affecting the role of midwifery supervision the role has now ceased.

The title of ‘Supervision of Midwives’ will no longer be in use and the role will be replaced by the Professional Midwifery Advocate role later this year.

This will not affect the care you receive from the midwives and staff employed by Bridgewater Community Midwifery services.

If you would like any further information regarding this change, please speak to your named midwife.
