Most midwives in favour of a strike

Most midwives in favour of a strikeMidwives are debilitating to go on strike without precedent for the historical backdrop of the calling in a move which represents a genuine stress for pregnant ladies.

The Royal College of Midwives said in England, midwives are 'over-extended, under-resourced and under-esteemed'.

Established in 1881, it is the first run through in his 133-year history that the RCM has ever asked its parts whether they are ready to go on strike.

Cathy Warwick, the CEO, cautioned, "The feeling of indignation and disappointment among midwives is tangible. We knew midwives were irate about the derisory offer from the Government yet this reaction from our parts highlights exactly how unreasonably they have been dealt with."

Such an extraordinary reaction with such a huge number eager to consider activity ought to ring alerts with the Government.

Every year, about 700,000 children are delivered in England, as indicated by the most recent authority figures from the Office for National Statistics.

The danger of a potential strike will fuel fears among pregnant ladies, who will stress over the effect of a strike on their possibility of a safe delivery.
