Cathy Warwick, general secretary of the Royal College of Midwives, said: "We believe that 4,700 more midwives are needed in England to provide a safe and high-quality service. We have a situation where the numbers of midwives coming in will be falling, along with a big retirement bulge in the next five to 10 years."
