Tamba announces Maternity Engagement programme interim report findings

Tamba's Maternity Engagement programme, funded by a grant from The Department of Health innovation fund, aims to ensure mothers expecting twins, triplets or more, are treated in line with the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) multiple pregnancy guidelines, as it is proven this could save lives.

The interim report shows if all maternity units performed the same as the best performing units in the group of 30 Tamba worked with, then 55 babies lives could be saved every year.

Along with the NICE guidance, Tamba is urging maternity units to access its free multiple-specific CPD resources, a multidisciplinary study day and a peer support unit exchange.

Tamba would also like to see all expectant multiple mothers having access to its new Twin Pregnancy Growth Charts – a world first developed and launched in the UK last year. The charts are designed specifically with twins, rather than singletons, in mind. Tamba supporters raised £25,000 to pay for the charts to be researched and developed.

The interim report can be viewed here.
