Abstract

This article reviews the UK literature about the extent to which midwives are prepared for their role in child protection in order to identify the evidence and to make recommendations for further research. Findings from the studies reviewed revealed a number of themes related to child protection in midwifery including: midwives perspectives, educational perspectives, multi-agency working and organisational perspectives. The review revealed that there is a dearth of empirical studies in this area with no studies found related to vulnerable groups such as those with mental health problems, learning disabilities, women with problems of substance abuse and teenagers.
