It’s not too late to thank your midwife

Phew! We’ve been reading your stories about how wonderful your midwives were during labour and we’re feeling a tad teary eyed. Right now, midwives are working harder than ever and doing their job in the toughest circumstances – we think they deserve a boost.

TYM

The Squad have been busy sharing their stories…

“My midwife was amazing from the moment I came in until the moment I got taken up to the ward. She was truly a star, she calmed me down and talked me through everything. Always made sure I was comfortable and had everything I wanted. She reassured me through everything. Best of all she helped me birth my baby girl! #ThankYouMidwife”

During labour, our midwives are the glue that holds everything together. Whether you had the calm water birth you had planned or you required intervention, chances are your midwife was there for you, holding your hand and explaining everything.

If you haven’t done so already then there’s still time to share your personal stories of how your midwife helped you during labour.

I can’t praise the BRI midwives highly enough. They were incredible and saved both our lives. We owe them everything!

I cant thank the midwife team at queen elizabeth hospital enough for all their support and help through the birth of my son. They helped keep me calm and were fantastic throughout - one midwife in particular stayed way after her shift finished as she wanted to see my little boy she had been with me throughout my labour from the beginning. She was truly a star her name was Polly thank you to her she was very supportive and kept me calm.

I had my little boy at the Barrett birthing centre at Northampton General and couldn’t have been better looked after by Gemma and Martine. I had the water birth I wanted and although I had to stay in for a few days, the healthcare assistants were a wonderful help too. To top it off the home birth team (Jodie and Kelly) were just the best up until the birth. Thank you so much everyone for first class care xx

I had my baby boy 6 months ago at Royal London Hospital. My baby was a baby breech. Even if they tried to turn the baby didn't work and they told me about the planning C section option. I refused it and I decided to go for normal delivery.
My water broke 4.30 in the morning and after 30 minutes contractions started. Were close like 5-7 min and after 2 hours every minute. I spent till 9.30 pm in pain till one of experienced midwifes came. A Jamaican lady, her name is Del. She was amazing. She asked me to change position and from that moment she guided me. At 11.43 Pm I finally gave birth to my little baby breech boy 3.100 gr by natural delivery. I would like to give a massive thank you to Royal London Hospital for respecting my decision to have natural delivery, thank you to the amazing team and a MASSIVE thank you full of greatness and respect to the Jamaican lady midwife. 🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻🌼🌼🌼
