One to One has a vision - to provide every woman in the UK with a midwife who they know and trust, that enables relationships to be formed that will ensure positive memories for women throughout their entire lives.
To do this we need more midwives. If you are interested in a career as a One to One midwife read on –
One to One (North West) Limited provides safe, high quality, innovative community based midwifery care. One to One delivers these services through GP commissioning ensuring that this ‘gold standard’ service remains free to all service users within the NHS.
One to One believes that all midwives should be empowered to provide safe, evidenced based care in a nurturing environment which will enhance their midwifery skills and provide them with the opportunity to practice autonomously within their NMC Rules.
Midwives are the true guardians of normal birth and here at One to One we truly believe that when midwives are empowered they are more able to empower the women and families under their care. A career as a One to One midwife will provide you with the opportunity to work in a caseloading model of care: providing care for a defined caseload of women from preconception throughout their whole pregnancy journey will give you the ability to be a ‘care navigator’ in the truest sense. You will retain full accountability for ensuring that women under your care have access to a wide range of services, whatever their needs. The One to One model is entrenched in the social model of care and ‘promotes’ and ‘prevents’ rather than having to ‘react’ and ‘treat’. Different team models provide midwives with the ability to be present at the birth of their women but also ensures that midwives can be confident and supported in achieving a work-life balance that fits in with their family commitments.
One to One is a complete cultural change from existing maternity service provision in two ways:
1. For Women: We place women and their families in the very centre of our care model, ensuring that our service is tailored around individual needs, not the needs of the organisation. A flexible, quality service where women work together with their midwife to plan their antenatal, birth and postnatal journey without bureaucratic restraints.
2. For midwives: working in a social model of midwifery through caseloading, midwifery in the purest sense. We offer midwives the opportunity to work autonomously in a flexible model where midwives plan their work through diary management in partnership with their women. The opportunity to access a very comprehensive education programme delivered both internally and externally, including: Hypnobirthing, The Exam of the Newborn, and Mentorship. Midwives will become confident and competent in providing care in early pregnancy and in antenatal triage – ensuring continuity of carer in all risk situations.
At One to One we encourage originality and innovation, we celebrate success and reward achievement. Working for One to One you will be given the opportunity to reach your full potential as a midwife.
One to One believes that midwives should be based in the community so that women know who they are, where they are and can contact a One to One midwife any time of the day or night.
One to One’s philosophy is entrenched in the normality of birth and promotes homebirth as a real choice option for all low risk women.
We are now looking to expand our midwifery team and wish to recruit midwives who share our ethos of care and wish to further their career in a forward-thinking organisation in an empowered and accountable way.
