Today the midwives of North Cumbria Integrated Care NHS Foundation Trust celebrate International Day of the Midwife

Over the past year, midwives have shown great commitment, strength and resilience and continue to adapt to the ever-changing needs of the maternity ward thanks to Covid-19

Between March 16 last year and the same date this year, Maternity Services at Cumberland Infirmary and West Cumberland Hospital delivered 2,689 babies – 1,347 boys and 1,341 girls and 39 pairs of twins

Rachel Fulton, director of midwifery services at NCIC, said: “We have received incredible feedback from women who feared having a baby in a pandemic.

“Our team strives every day to make our women’s birth experiences as positive and ‘normal’ as possible, in an otherwise ‘abnormal’ world.

Amanda Kennett, Associate Director of Midwives at NCIC, said: “Being a midwife is trying to make a positive difference for women and their babies at this crucial time.

“Being a midwife is a privilege and it’s a great day to celebrate and say thank you for all the care midwives provided to women and families during the pandemic and for their dedication and hard work throughout. of the year”

To help women see what maternity units are like, the trust has developed a virtual tour of the West Cumberland Hospital Maternities and Cumberland Infirmary

The West Cumberland Hospital Maternity Hospital Video Tour, which includes voiceover and captions, features community midwife Julie McQuire explaining how to get to the delivery room and then once in inside, it takes you on a journey through:

Janet Riley, Matronity Services Matron at West Cumberland Hospital, said: “It’s really important to have a virtual tour in place for anyone who is expecting to come to our house.

“We hope this will calm the nerves of those who feel anxious before participating”
