Join the RCN Midwifery Forum Facebook Group

RCN Facebook groups are a place where you can get involved in honest and open discussions on the issues that affect you and your field of practice.

I wanted to join the RCN Midwifery Forum as I believed that, as professional colleagues, midwives and nurses, together we could take a strong approach to improving care and advocating for childbearing women. 

Within the Midwifery Forum I have found widely experienced midwifery colleagues who are as passionate about safe care as I am. The Midwifery Forum gives me the opportunity to work with these colleagues to develop projects, respond to policy and represent the RCN's pool of midwifery expertise and knowledge.
