New Service to Support Women in Labour
Launched on 11th April 2016, there is a new telephone service governed by the Dorset CCG to advise and support women who think they are in labour. The service will be operated by experienced midwives 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The midwives will also support women who are concerned about reduced fetal movement and unexplained pain or bleeding.
