"The Code states that 'it is impractical to obtain consent every time you share information with others'. Yet, as midwives, we need to ensure that women fully understand that some information may, with their consent, be made available to team members who are also involved in their care. We should not assume that they give tacit approval by their presence in the hospital or indeed by allowing us into their homes. Along with seeking their consent to appropriately share the information with others, the Code also requires us 'to guard against breaches in confidentiality by protecting information from improper disclosure at all times'."
