Help celebrate a hero midwife

HELP celebrate and recognise midwives for their contribution to the NSW health system.

It’s as easy as nominating an outstanding nurse or midwife for the Excellence in Nursing and Midwifery Awards, part of International Day of the Midwife (May 5).
NSW Chief Nursing and Midwifery Officer Jacqui Cross said midwives played a vital role in helping to deliver safe, effective and collaborative maternity care in the State’s public maternity services.
“I’m very proud of the exceptional work of midwives in our services, making a difference in the lives of women, babies and their families every day,” Ms Cross said.
“Our midwives are passionate about providing woman-centred care to ensure women feel empowered to make decisions about their maternity care that meets their unique needs and achieves their desired health outcomes.”
Health Minister Ryan Park said midwives were highly valued for their incredible work supporting women, their babies and families at such an important time in their lives.
“I thank every midwife across the NSW Health system for their ongoing commitment to providing safe and high-quality midwifery care to keep mothers and babies healthy across the State,” he said.
Nominations: before June 14.
