Many of the UK’s maternity wards are under massive strain. In September 2013, the Royal College of Midwives said maternity hospitals were like “pressure cookers”, due in no small part to the birth rate in Britain reaching a record high.
The body also said that many maternity units were having to turn expectant mothers away, forcing them to travel to the next nearest facility. This raises serious questions about what might happen if a woman with a complicated pregnancy were to be turned away, but also suggests that maternity staff are being stretched to the limit.
This could potentially result in hard-pushed, over-worked members of staff making mistakes that could have very serious consequences for mothers and new-born babies alike.
