We want to offer integrated care to families with newborn babies. The services of the maternity clinic, medical specialists, midwives and Mother, Father/Parent Counselling should be coordinated and easy for families to organize. That is why we choose an interprofessional approach. What have we achieved so far?
- We have optimized the data transfer from maternity clinics to our midwifery network. There is a regular exchange of ideas and information.
- We work closely with Mother, Father/Parent Counselling and the Basel section of the Swiss Federation of Midwives. Our joint mission statement outlines our common approach, defines the guiding principles of our collaboration and clarifies handover processes.
- We foster our relationships and collaboration with the various professions involved in caring for families before, during and after birth through continuing and direct contacts.
- The members of our board and expert committee come from a range of professions.
