Antenatal video initiative praised
VIDEO STAR: Gergana Nikolova, midwife at Wexham Park Hospital, was the brains behind a new video initiative A MIDWIFE is the brains behind a new initiative at a hospital to produce a series of antenatal videos for parents to be.
Gergana Nikolova, midwife at Wexham Park Hospital, was behind the idea of videos to cover a wide range of subjects from birth planning to post natal care.
The videos are proving to be a huge success, with positive feedback from parents to be and from local GPs.
And local GP Dr Laura Weidner, form Southmead Surgery in Farnham Common, said: “I think the videos provide an excellent resource for parents-tobe.
“There is so much information to impart to pregnant women in short appointment times, that it is useful to have accurate resources to refer women to, and the videos are very easy to use and can be accessed on a computer or smart phone. As a GP I would be very happy to recommend them to my patients”
Gergana worked with the midwife team at Wexham Park hospital and Slough based company, Croft TV, to produce the videos, and was recently awarded a Frimley Health staff award for her work.
