Back on the ward
BJM is not alone in celebrating its 25th birthday this year. Midwife Jonathan Cliffe describes returning to the hospital in which he was born in 1993
This year, British Journal of Midwifery (BJM) celebrates 25 years of publication, having provided those who work in women's health and maternity services with a wealth of clinical, professional and educational content throughout the years. The journal prides itself in publishing the most relevant and up-to-date original research, evidence-based papers and clinical reviews, which aim to establish best practice in midwifery. The same year, on 8 March 1993, I was welcomed into the world by the team of midwives and obstetricians at Warrington hospital—the same hospital where I now work as a midwife.
Midwifery practice has seen many changes in the past 25 years, from the introduction of new technology and equipment, to changes in midwifery regulators and the publication of significant documents and government policies. Midwives and maternity services have frequently been in the spotlight, and I am sure that this will continue in the future (Cliffe, 2015).
