Job of bringing newborns into the world is her baby
MIDWIFE ONE OF MANY THANKED
IN NINE short months, Bentley Hospital midwife Michelle Swartz has welcomed dozens of local babies to the world.
On May 5, Ms Swartz was among the midwives in Bentley celebrated for their contribution to child birth as part of International Day of the Midwife.
Ms Swartz said her career was a privilege, and considered every birth memorable.
“Every birth that I have had the privilege of providing care to the woman for is memorable,” she said.
“Each woman is unique, therefore every labour and birth is a memorable and special experience.”
Celebrating with a cake and a cuppa, the team at Bentley celebrated the theme Women and Newborns: The Heart of Midwifery, with each nurse wearing purple.
Mothers and newborns also attended the celebrations.
Ms Swatrz said the day was a wonderful opportunity for the team to take a break from the fast-paced and unpredictable life of midwifery.
“International Midwives Day is a great way to acknowledge and celebrate Midwives for their hard work and dedication to the health and wellbeing of pregnant women and newborns,” she said.
