dc.description.abstractThe culture and working practices within midwifery settings are key modifiable factors that influence the emotional wellbeing of midwives. As a caring profession, a culture of self-sacrifice still appears to be expected in the provision of care, despite this having a negative effect on care provision. Shift patterns, long shifts and working practices where midwives continue to miss rest breaks, work unpaid beyond their contracted hours or present for work when unwell, all have a negative impact on emotional wellbeing. Future wellbeing strategies in midwifery settings should focus on supporting a positive workplace culture that cares equally for its midwives as it does for the women and babies in its care.en
