We have produced a new helpline flyer that is to be sent to all maternity units across England and Wales. The flyer gives healthcare professionals the opportunity to pass on our details to new and expectant parents.
The flyer signposts expectant and new parents to our Helpline for information and support.
We hope to see a stand of these on every midwifery desk across the country.
If you wish to be sent a pack of flyers, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org
We also offer maternity units our Tell It Right® information packs, which are available to download or we can send physical copies.
In addition to these resources, we also conduct our Royal College of Midwives accredited Tell It Right® training. up and down the country. Our key objective is to ensure that health professionals have up to date, accurate and balanced information about living with Down’s syndrome. This knowledge will assist them to support expectant parents through the screening process by sharing the information in a non-directive manner.
Along with the flyer, we have also produced a new fact sheet about Non-Invasive Prenatal Testing (NIPT) for Down’s syndrome. Written by Colette Lloyd, the fact sheet clarifies facts about NIPT including:
- That NIPT uses placental DNA
- That NIPT is not diagnostic
- The importance of your “positive predictive value”
- What to do next
