Raising awareness of Independent Midwifery

Posted on: December 15, 2008

I regularly attend Health Exhibitions and also co-host Exhibitions locally in Milton Keynes and I really enjoy this work. It gets me out and about to meet pregnant women, and those who may be considering a pregnancy and raises the profile of midwifery in general and Independent Midwifery in particular. It gives women (or partners) an opportunity to ask questions and makes midwives more accessible – it is often hard to ask questions in a hurried consultation at the surgery.

I usually have information leaflets on hand and often promise to research something and forward detailed information on later.

One such Exhibition this year was the LINk 2 Health & Care Event in Middleton Hall, Central Milton Keynes and you can see some photographs of the day here www.communityvoicesonline.org/LINks/documents.aspx?id=38

There are many other opportunities for example the Parents Information Day in Milton Keynes which was held in October this year; then there is National Breastfeeding Week, International Day of the Midwife and World Breastfeeding Week.
