Safeguarding Midwife – Jennifer Morrison
Jen has the amazing opportunity of being the safeguarding midwife at One to One. She came into post in September 2016, after working for the company since 2012. She is hugely passionate about safeguarding and when the opportunity came to be a safeguarding midwife, it was ultimately the new direction her career would follow.
Her family and work life are equally as busy, Jen is a mum to three children, two of whom are football enthusiasts and one who has just mastered how to walk. When She’s not mum you will find her during working hours supporting hard working, dedicated midwives who hold safeguarding cases. She works closely with the head of safeguarding to ensure the smooth, day to day running of the department. Jen also liaises closely with many professionals, GP’S, Health Visitor’s, Children’s services, building pathways and relationships to ensure the very best quality of care is provided to all our families.
It’s no easy task, however the safeguarding of vulnerable adults and children is paramount and is at the heart of everything we do at the safeguarding department. The role is extremely challenging at times, however to know we have contributed to ensuring babies and children are safe from harm is very rewarding.
