Would you like the chance to say thank you to your midwife?
The nominations for the prestigious JOHNSON’S® Baby Mums’ Midwife of the Year Award has opened, the only award that allows new mums to nominate their deserving midwives as a special ‘thank you’ for all their support before, during and after birth.
Part of the Royal College of Midwives (RCM) Annual Midwifery Awards and sponsored by the JOHNSON’S® Baby brand, the JOHNSON’S® Baby Mums’ Midwife of the Year Award celebrates midwives who have gone above and beyond the call of duty. The award offers recognition for midwives who have supported mums through a difficult pregnancy or labour or have gone the extra mile to make the birth of a child a truly amazing experience to cherish forever.
Nominations are open from now until Monday 3rd September 2012 and mums can nominate their midwife by simply logging on to http://www.johnsonsbaby.co.uk/midwifeoftheyear and explaining why they feel their midwife deserves this award.
Last year’s winner of the JOHNSON’S® Baby Mums’ Midwife of the Year, Debbie Oram, was nominated by mum Olwen Mayes for her role in the birth of baby Huw. She said: “Winning the award last year truly stunned me. As a midwife, I find it so rewarding to guide each mother through the journey in their own individual way, so to be recognised for this is a dream come true! I’m incredibly humbled to have been involved and to share this experience with Olwen and the other deserving finalists.”
A carefully selected panel of mums and midwives will choose six regional winners who’ll be invited to accept their trophy at the prestigious Royal College of Midwives Annual Midwifery Awards in London, where the overall JOHNSON’S® Baby Mums’ Midwife of the Year will be announced. And what’s more, all the mums who nominated the winners can attend the awards too! The Awards event is a unique opportunity for midwives to learn about innovative and exemplary projects in fields that promote normal birth, excellence in research and addressing inequalities in health. It is also a chance for them to meet leading members of the midwifery profession and senior health officials. It promises to be a really magical day, with a gourmet meal and special guests in attendance.
