Our favourite Squaddie Shares
What a week we’ve had! We’ve all been celebrating International Day of The Midwife in some way, whether it’s sharing our stories to Instagram, commenting on the blog or just thinking back to that momentous day when our little one came into the world (and giving them an extra cuddle as a result).
Right now, NHS staff are working harder than ever and, as well as going outside and cheering loudly at 8pm every Thursday, we’ve been sharing our birth stories so that the amazing midwives across the country know how appreciated they are.
It’s been so lovely reading all of your tributes to your midwives and we thought we’d share a couple more of our faves:
Squaddie @Evonna shared her amazing story of her breech birth,
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 midwife, Del.
Squaddie Sadie @sadiezogi.x, shared her lovely pictures of the day her little one came into the world over on Instagram and the story of her midwife Rebecca. She sums it up beautifully when she says,
Thank you to all midwives for supporting new mummies even through this awful time and putting yourselves at risk. Normal life may be on hold but new life certainly isn’t! You will forever be the rainbow in a cloudy sky.– sob!
Normally, we’d be sharing your best hints and tips right about now but we’ve dedicated this week to midwives everywhere. We do have one very useful bit of advice though, if you’re currently pregnant (or your partner, best pal or sis is) and you’re wondering how things might change in the lead up to the birth, visit @PampersUK_ire for the latest info from the Nursing and Midwifery Council.
And, if you want to share your story and haven’t yet then it’s not too late. Simply post a few words about your midwife to Instagram and tag @pampersUK_Ire and #ThankYouMidwife then share the URL link with us so that we can share it with the rest of the Squad!
@all: What would you say to your midwife if you had chance?
