I am an NHS obstetrician hoping to share some thoughts and experiences about my working life. Maybe you enjoy call the midwife, perhaps birth fascinates, or you are simply curious about what exactly an obstetrician is? You might be pregnant and preparing for birth right now. Perhaps you work in maternity care and want to know what makes your obstetric colleagues tick, or you want some fresh ideas and inspiration. Whichever of these is the case TheObsPod is for you. Each episode contains 'the zesty bit' the essence of what I hope you will take away from listening. I do hope you will subscribe and enjoy joining me. Find me on Twitter @FWmaternity & @TheObsPod & explore #MatExp matexp.org.uk to find out more about women and staff working together to improve maternity services. With thanks to Anna Geyer www.newpossibilities.co.uk for my beautiful artwork
