Walsall Healthcare’s Student Midwives have been celebrated in a day of recognition for them.

Student Midwives’ Celebration Day took place yesterday (Wednesday). It was a day to celebrate the commitment of midwifery students to the profession and to recognise the amazing contribution that midwifery students have made to the NHS and to the profession, particularly during the last two difficult years.

Walsall Healthcare NHS Trust’s senior midwifery team held a drop in afternoon on Foxglove Ward as a thank you for all of the students’ hard work within Maternity Services.

Divisional Director of Midwifery, Gynaecology and Sexual Health, Carla Jones-Charles said: “Our student midwives are the future of our services and will become a big part of many women’s and their family’s journeys through our care. We want to nurture them and see them grow into the successful competent midwives they will become.”

Clinical Academic Link Tutor for Women’s and Children, Helen Haden, added: “The event is about recognising their contribution to the unit.

“We pride ourselves on having a close-knit team and they are a part of it. They are a massive part of maternity and it’s been nice to do something for them.”

We asked some of Walsall’s student midwives what they like about working in the Trust Here’s what they said:

Lyndsey Griffiths, aged 26, from Walsall, said: “It’s been lovely working at Walsall. Staff have been really accommodating and supportive. My favourite thing about my role is being with the woman and getting to know them and their families.”

Isdi Jacques, 20 from Manchester, said: “Everyone has been welcoming and supportive and always willing to help and teach. My favourite thing about my role is making a difference in women’s care.”

Amber-Rose Fox, 27, from Walsall said: “Staff are really helpful at Walsall, there is always someone to go to for everything. My favourite thing about my role is looking after women and making sure those that need additional care have universal care.”

Jo Bull, 34, from Wednesbury said: “Staff are really friendly. My favourite thing about my role is seeing women though and really focusing on continuity of care.”
