Complex pregnancies

What is the programme and its aims

This programme focuses on women who have complex pregnancies for a variety of reasons. Our overall aim is to improve the identification and care of women in the East Midlands who are at higher risk, and to ensure a consistent, optimised approach to the care of these women to improve their experience and outcomes. Focusing on selected risk factors we are endeavouring to agree an East Midlands approach, building on national recommendations and evidence, then supporting implementation and audit. We engage clinicians and commissioners to maintain a sustainable East Midlands Complex Pregnancies Network that will improve services in accordance with national service standards, delivering care as close to home as possible. This work will encompass both fetal medicine and maternal medicine.
