Preceptorship is the 15th series of ‘Midwifery basics’ targeted at practising midwives. The aim of these articles is to provide information to raise awareness of the impact of the work of midwives on women’s experience, and encourage midwives to seek further information through a series of activities relating to the topic. In this fourth article of the series, Neesha Ridley and Kerry Taylor look into the barriers and challenges that present to all midwives, particularly in the prioritisation of care and management of workload. They provide top tips in order to help support newly qualified midwives manage their work well, thus providing safe, effective care to all women and newborns at all times.
