Midwives’ tales shared at aware­ness day

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

MIDWIVES cel­e­brated the In­ter­na­tional Day of the Mid­wife at Wexham Park Hos­pi­tal on Tues­day, May 5.

They hosted a se­ries of in­for­ma­tion stands to raise aware­ness of the ma­ter­nity ser­vices pro­vided at the hos­pi­tal.

The In­ter­na­tional Day of the Mid­wife is an in­ter­na­tion­ally recog­nised day that high­lights the work of midwives across the world.

An­drea An­der­son, deputy head of mid­wifery, said: “The day was a great op­por­tu­nity to re­mind peo­ple about the role of midwives and to share ex­am­ples of great care and pos­i­tive ways of work­ing.

“The mid­wife team at Wexham Park hos­pi­tal is pas­sion­ate about shar­ing their knowl­edge and skills with oth­ers who work in ar­eas where they are less for­tu­nate and don’t have the same ac­cess to train­ing and equip­ment as we do in the UK.

“As a re­sult they have formed a part­ner­ship with a non-gov­ern­ment not for profit hos­pi­tal in Hoima, Uganda, and this year we wanted to give spe­cial recog­ni­tion to our midwives who give their time to help sup­port and im­prove mid­wifery there.”
