The Scottish Executive is committed to constantly improving maternity care provision, working to the principles of the Framework for Maternity Services in Scotland and the report of the Expert Group on Maternity Services in Scotland, as well as the adoption of initiatives such as UNICEFs Baby Friendly Initiative in NHS hospitals.

We have worked closely with NHS Quality Improvement Scotland to set standards for maternity services, and a recent audit of these services reported that services in Scotland are delivering high quality care before, during and after pregnancy.
