3 founding principles of the NHS
- To meet the needs of everyone
- Free at the point of delivery
- Based on clinical need, not on the ability to pay
For these reasons The Real Birth Company is creating partnerships with NHS Trusts, so that as many women as possible can receive the high quality antenatal education they deserve. The Programme will be accessed via their digital maternity health records, in alignment with the NHS Long Term Plan.
Who is The Real Birth Programme for?
How does The Real Birth Programme support women and families?
The vision from the Better Births Maternity Review is for all maternity services across England to become safer, kinder, more professional, more family-centred with a greater level of personalisation of care; where every birthing person has access to information to enable them to make informed decisions about their care. We believe we have designed our Programme to do just that.
The Programme can be easily accessed via a woman’s digital maternity records, or via a specialised QR code created for each Trust if digital records have not yet been implemented. This makes it easy and convenient for women and their partners to access information at a time that suits them on any laptop or handheld device.
Once accessed women can set up an account to access our one-of-a-kind Programme in their chosen language. The programme has been human translated into 7 different languages at present, with more in development. Digital access to our multi-lingual platform ensures that women from all nationalities and backgrounds can access the same level of high quality antenatal education, without the usual language barriers, helping to address health inequalities.
