About Innermost Learning

Innermost Learning was set up in 2011 by Dr Bryan Beattie MD FRCOG, inspired by nearly 30 years of NHS and private practice in women’s healthcare.

As the most senior Consultant in Fetal Medicine in Wales and a leading national figure, Dr Beattie is dedicated to promoting safe, quality healthcare for women and is passionate about improving education for healthcare professionals and patients.

Dr Beattie qualified in 1983 from Queen’s University Belfast. Over the years, he has witnessed many changes in the approach to women’s health and pregnancy care, some of which he welcomes and others which cause him concern. He believes in couples being supported in making informed choices about their pregnancy based on safe-and-sound information that allows them to make the right choices for them.  Of most concern to him is the fact that the UK still has one of the highest stillbirth rates in Europe and Dr Beattie is resolute in his aim to address this. He has been involved in a number of national working groups and gave evidence on this topic to the Welsh Government’s Health and Social Care Committee. Innermost Learning works to improve education and provide practical support and information for healthcare professionals, students and members of the public.
