The Best Beginnings Team are an innovative award winning community based midwifery team specialising in the care of vulnerable women e.g. mental health, domestic violence, child protection and any family with complex needs in the Royal Borough of Greenwich.
The Best Beginnings team provides an intensive community based preventative approach to women with additional needs during the antenatal and postnatal period. The focus of the work is on reducing inequalities in health and in child development. The team provide a caseload approach where continuity of care is provided for women, with discharge and handover to Health Professionals. Their care is then tailored according to their particular individual needs. It offers outreach and home visiting in the antenatal and postnatal period to engage those women less likely to access services themselves and to encourage them to use Children?s Centres and other services available.
You will facilitate close working relations between the multidisciplinary team and outside agents, ensuring women and their families are aware and can access all services.
You will be an experienced, autonomous, motivated and passionate midwife providing additional professional support to women, partners and families who are identified as being vulnerable both in the community and hospital setting by carrying your own caseload of women. You will provide midwifery care to your own caseload of women throughout the transition into motherhood.
Your role will involve adapting the care required to the needs of the woman, either at home, within the hospital setting or in the community. You will need to be available to work weekdays and some weekends. Being a car driver is essential. You will need to have been qualified at least 18 months and have had some experience of community midwifery; however, this can be accommodated if you have the passion and philosophy of the team ethics.
