Maternity and Neonatal safety during COVID-19

We held a Maternal Neonatal Safety Improvement Programme (MatNeoSIP) webinar on the 30 July 2020. You can watch the MatNeoSIP webinar recording here.

To support our colleagues who work in Maternity and Neonatal (MatNeo) services, we have gathered key safety messages and information resources, to use during the COVID-19 pandemic. For non-COVID-19 related MatNeo information, please visit our MatNeoSIP pages.

Key safety messages

An initial survey carried out by Women’s Aid in April 2020, confirmed that Covid-19 had impacted on the experiences of women experiencing domestic abuse.
