In 2017 we were delighted to secure funding for another wireless foetal monitor, for the Antenatal Ward.
Baby Bean Appeal
Our joint charity appeal in Jersey, the Baby Bean Appeal, fundraised for 5 wireless foetal monitors for Jersey Maternity, one for every delivery room. As well as providing continuous monitoring of the health and safety of baby, mothers can move freely during every stage of labour and it offers flexible birthing options, such as water births and natural delivery after c-section. Evidence also shows mothers who are mobile have significantly shorter labour lengths and we anticipate a reduction in the number of caesarean sections as being mobile and upright is the optimum position for shorter labours and successful natural births.
We are delighted that all 5 wireless foetal monitors have been purchased and the feedback from both mums-to-be and midwives has been overwhelmingly positive.
