A quick summer update

We had several papers published in the last few months, please see our research output page. These papers discuss women’s experiences of continuity of information as provided by midwives and health visitors and women’s views on the antenatal contact provided by health visitors.

The website has recently been updated with some of our new publications – 2018 has been a busy year. See our Research Output page for details on our work on incorporating health visiting into the midwifery curriculum.  We have several projects related to midwifery and health visitor training currently, so check in regularly for updates. This year, we also published a paper on an evaluation of training for healthcare professionals to work more collaboratively. This evaluation used workshop observations, interviews and surveys to capture both the interaction during the workshop and effect of the workshop afterwards.

Hello and welcome!


Welcome to the COllaborating in Pregnancy and Early years (COPE) website. We are a group of researchers from City University London, who are currently working on understanding the ways through which we can support midwives and health visitors in working in partnership when delivering maternity services.

This website is for those who share the same interests, with the goal of getting people together to improve mothers’, babies’, and families’ health. Please feel free to browse our website pages for further information on our current research.

At present, we are looking for mums who have had a child in the last 12 months, as well as currently practising midwives and health visitors (full-time) for two separate interview studies.

We look forward to hearing from you!
