Barnsley midwives win funds for baby death talk

Have your say

Barnsley Hospital specialist midwives Jo Poskitt and Ashley Horbury have won a competition after devising a talk to reduce the risk of sudden infant deaths.

The staff have been given £400 through an ‘innovation competition’ at their workplace to develop the scheme.

Midwives offer mums a first aid kid and safety blanket, and give advice while using a simulation shaken baby doll.
