Professional Practice

We share the common sadness that is currently permeating through midwifery, that there is something desperately wrong at the core of the profession. Low morale and record high levels of stress, pressure, physical and mental health issues are being reported by our maternity colleagues.

We believe it is time to take a deep breath, press the reset button and reclaim true midwifery care for both practitioners and for the people who want and deserve to feel safe, special and empowered on their journey into parenthood.

A truly professional practice

Working within the NMC Code of Practice, the ZEST model enables you to work in partnership with your clients where you can utilise the appropriate guidelines and evidence to maintain safe care.

The experienced ZEST team is dedicated to offer continuous advocacy and support to respect your professional accountability. We foster an open and transparent relationship, where you feel comfortable to approach us whenever you feel the need. 

We are extremely proud to have developed this model alongside our insurance partners that enables you to work as an autonomous practitioner offering genuine choice to your clients.

We promote and maintain an excellent relationship with our NHS partners. We believe that adopting a Multi Disciplinary Team approach ensures a seamless journey of care which is always safe and appropriate.

We collate data to enable us to celebrate success and to encourage continuous learning. All data is held securely and under GDPR regulation.

As a registrant you and your clients are assured of support and advocacy by accessing the ZEST Kindness, Quality and Safety Collaborative (KQSC).
