Edward Mountain MSP champions Highland Midwives in Holyrood debate

Today I celebrated the work of Highland midwives during a Holyrood debate, which marked the International Day of the Midwife.

I praised the passion and dedication of midwives across the Highlands and welcomed the new midwifery course offered by UHI, which specialises in providing maternity services in remote and rural Scotland.

However, I also cautioned the Scottish Government against measures to further downgrade maternity services in the Highlands.
