International Day of the Midwife 2024

International Day of the Midwife

Sunday 5 May is International Day of the Midwife, a day to celebrate and say thank you to midwives.

Our midwives are committed to ensuring safe and positive birthing experiences they show unwavering dedication, compassion, and expertise in providing safe, compassionate and joined-up care to mothers, pregnant people and babies around the clock.

Their kindness and skill shine through in every interaction, bringing comfort and reassurance during what can be both joyful and challenging times and this has been captured in this wonderful video featuring messages of thanks from families they have cared for.


The impact midwives make extends far beyond the delivery room, touching the hearts of families and leaving a lasting impression that they will cherish forever.

We wish all of our midwvies a very happy International Day of the Midwife!

'I cannot commend the clinic enough. It is marvellous we have this service at all and well done to you all.'
