Midwives all over the world work hard every day to ensure mothers and their families receive the quality care they deserve.

Every year on the 5th of May, the profession comes together all over the world to mark the International Day of the Midwife.

This year’s theme is ‘Midwives, Mothers and Families: Partners for Life!’, which showcases that midwives understand the importance of working in partnership with women and their families towards a safe and fulfilling birth.

To mark the event, our Maternity Unit created a poster exhibition to gather information about what matters to midwives, women and their families. This information is being used to feedback to staff and further enhance the experience of families throughout pregnancy, childbirth, the postnatal period and beyond.
