Shared on Instagram and Facebook. I've had 3 babies and every midwife I had was amazing! From the community midwife, delivery midwife and ward midwives. So well deserved!!

All female pics are far too common for midwives. During my pregnancy I went to a male midwife with questions so many times - he really help soothe my fears constantly. I think the men in the field are almost always overlooked. I know how they feel as I'm a woman in a male dominated field and I really wanted to give them the acknowledgement they deserve. Sexism goes both ways :)

Had mostly lovely midwives throughout my labour in July 17. The midwife and student midwife who came in at 8am and was amazing at encouraging me to try and move to help my baby and increase my chances of a natural birth. They couldn't have been more supportive as I was rushed to theatre for an emergency C-section. They were amazing and the student stayed with me while I was still in theatre and my husband and daughter went into recovery. They got me moved to the ward so quickly so my sister could see me and my daughter. I was so full of painkillers I never said thank you to them. I was lucky enough to have the same midwife in charge of my care two days later so I got to thank her for everything she done. I was exhausted at this point and desperate to go home. She was so supportive and said she would either get me discharged or if I needed to stay in she would get me a private room. I was so lucky to have her come and tell me that I was being discharged at the end of her shift, I got to walk out with her.
