A midwife for Kate? The silence that demands a roar

Birth Talk

Like much of the world, Kensington Palace just doesn’t get it. Every women needs a midwife and some need a doctor, too!

Kate, The Duchess of Cambridge, has been having care from a midwife for months, like every other pregnant woman in the UK, yet there is a white-out obscuring this important reality. This royal birth could do so much to share important messages about quality maternal and newborn care.

At 6.37 this morning LBC announced:

‘Kate will be looked after by a similar team of doctors and nurses to the one that helped her through Prince George’s birth in July 2013.

Guy Thorpe-Beeston, who holds the role of Surgeon Gynaecologist to the Royal Household, will be leading the medical team.

Alan Farthing, a consultant gynaecological surgeon, will also be present, as he was for the birth of her first son. He is also Surgeon Gynaecologist to the Queen.’
