Mother’s Day is going to be different once again this year; with national restrictions on households mixing outside of established bubbles meaning families and loved ones will not be able to celebrate in the usual way.
The NHS recently set out a national ambition to halve this rate as set out in the “Saving Babies Lives Care Bundle” with an ambition of achieving a smoking in pregnancy rate of 6%. In Cornwall our rate is currently around 15%, far too high.
We are reintroducing some limited visiting at our main and community hospitals in a safe and COVID-compliant way. This is in line with updated guidance from NHS England and the Government’s roadmap out of lockdown.
