Harrison’s Little Wings Inc has been advocating that all Maternal Fetal Medicine (MFM) Units introduce a Caseload Continuity of Care model. Evidence proves that this model provides women with better birthing outcomes, some of the research has also touched on the emotional support of this particular model.
We believe that women who receive care in the MFM units needs consistency and to have the most emotional support possible during this very difficult time. Having the one known clinical carer that attends every appointment with the women and specialists, and her birth, and postnatal care, creates stability and consistently in care and also information given to the women and amongst her care providers.
We are thrilled to announce that the Gold Coast University Hospital has supported our advocacy with this model of care and will be implementing a Caseload Continuity of care model into their MFM unit within the next 6 months.
We are so excited to see this model be launched and we are keen to learn any learnings that may come from this model being created with women who have a high risk pregnancy. We would like to thank the Gold Coast University Hospitals maternity executives, and Maternal Fetal Medicine staff on the openness and willingness to embrace this model. It has been a pleasure to work with this amazing team, and we can’t wait to see the launch of this project.
