Description

A Midwife Episode is an ACTIVITY GROUP.

A Midwife Episode is a continuous period of time a PATIENT uses a Hospital Bed  or Delivery facility as part of a Hospital Provider Spell or Care Home Stay (Midwife Care), under the direct care of a MIDWIFE. This may be during a Maternity Episode or Labour and Delivery for the mother but may also be for a baby following a REGISTRABLE BIRTH.
