Description

One to One has a vision - to provide every woman in the UK with a midwife who they know and trust, that enables relationships to be formed that will ensure positive memories for women throughout their entire lives

One to One Midwives are an NHS accredited independent midwifery service providing case loading midwifery in the community. One to One aims to provide woman with the same midwife throughout pregnancy who will provide antenatal, birth (Homebirth) and postnatal midwifery services. One to One is insured by the NHS Litigation Authority who insures NHS hospitals and has also been fully assessed and assured by the NHS Care Quality Commission (CQC). The service was founded by a midwife and manages ‘all risk’ women in partnership with other health and social care providers.

Our Midwives provide safe, high quality, innovative community based Midwifery care. Our service is delivers through GP commissioning ensuring that this ‘gold standard’ service remains free to all service users within the NHS.

We believe that all Midwives should be empowered to provide safe, evidenced based care in a nurturing environment which will enhance their Midwifery skills and provide them with the opportunity to practice autonomously within their NMC Rules. Midwives are the true guardians of normal birth and we truly believe that when Midwives are empowered they are more able to empower the women and families under their care.

The One to One Midwives model is entrenched in the social model of care and ‘promotes’ and ‘prevents’ rather than having to ‘react’ and ‘treat’. Our model provides midwives with the opportunity to be present at the birth of their women but also ensures that Midwives can be confident and supported in achieving a work-life balance that fits in with their family commitments.

One to One offers a change in cultural form traditional maternity services in two ways:

  1. For Women: we place women and their families in the very centre of our care model, ensuring that our service is tailored around individual needs, not the needs of the organisation. A flexible, quality service where women work together with their midwife to plan their antenatal, birth and postnatal journey.
  2. For Midwives: working in a social model of midwifery through caseloading, midwifery in the purest sense. We offer Midwives the opportunity to work autonomously in a flexible model where Midwives plan their work through diary management in partnership with their women. The opportunity to access a very comprehensive education programme delivered both internally and externally, including: Hypnobirthing, The Exam of the Newborn, and Mentorship. Midwives will become confident and competent in providing care in early pregnancy and in antenatal triage – ensuring continuity of carer in all risk situations.

We encourage originality and innovation, we celebrate success and reward achievement. Working for One to One Midwives you will be given the opportunity to reach your full potential as a Midwife.
