This aim of this campaign is to prompt families who’ve been cared for under Southend to give thanks to the amazing midwives who may have touched their lives. So often, we are caught up in the dreamy/ hellish/ blissful/ overwhelming/ ecstatic/ bewildering newborn haze, with all the intentions to pass on our gratitude, and don’t quite make it happen.
We all know the system isn’t perfect, resources are tight, and the people working within the service are often under immense pressure. So shouldn’t we consider it even more wonderful when someone goes out of their way to make a positive difference to our experience?
I’m collecting these short videos to deliver to our local midwives in May, in celebration of International Day of the Midwife, in the hope that these incredible people will feel a little bit boosted by being reminded how their kindness and compassion stays with us for years, how we marvel at their skills and respect their work ethic. I’d love them to see your babies now, and have that moment of insight into the way they’ve supported your family.
You can email yours to me: firstname.lastname@example.org and/ or I would love for you to share them on your own social media with the hashtag #givethankslikeamother and let others know to join in.
