Sarah Kruger - Women's Experience and Parent Education Lead Midwife
As the Women’s Experience Midwife, I champion the voice of the service user. My role is to influence the development of a safe and high standard of maternity care provision by supporting and co-ordinating women’s experiences of maternity care. I am also passionate about antenatal education; I believe that having an understanding of the physiology of birth, an awareness of choices and where to get further support can go a long way to ensure a positive birth experience. I lead on our Programme of Parent Education and work collaboratively with other health professionals to ensure current evidence-based information is taught to support women and families to make informed choices. I am also a Hypnobirth Midwife Practitioner, part of the Birth Reflection and Resolution Team and I am involved with the maintenance of the DGT Maternity Website.
