Two midwives from Shrewsbury and Telford Hospitals NHS Trust (SSTH) have been cautioned over their care of a mother whose baby died. The Nursing and Midwifery Council has now issued a three-year and one-year caution respectively, which are on file for patients to see during the periods. SATH said “We thoroughly investigated the events surrounding this tragic death and fully accept that there was a failure to fully follow guidelines on [bleeding before birth], and for this we are extremely sorry.” Neither woman was accused of causing the death of the boy, four days after he was born.
