Our vision for maternity care is for all women to have a safe and positive birth, and maternity experience, and be prepared to approach parenting with confidence. This is underpinned by four core commitments.

  1. Women/pregnant people and their chosen support networks will be partners in care
  2. Maternity and neonatal services and organisational partners within the Local Maternity and Neonatal System (LMNS) will work collaboratively together
  3. We will enhance safety through assisting all women/pregnant people to experience the best birth possible for their personal circumstances
  4. Women/pregnant people/ their partners and birth supporters and their families will be supported and enabled to optimise their health in preparation for pregnancy, birth and parenthood

The BSW My Care Hub personalised care app provides mobile links to information on this resource along with additional links to other national sources of information for people who are booked with maternity services in BSW.

The BSW Local Maternity and Neonatal System supports women and pregnant people and their birth supporters to work together with providers of maternity and neonatal services to continually improve and shape services to meet the needs of those of who use our services.
