Celebrating Midwives

Wednesday, 19 June 2019


Barwon Health midwives again were busy in the lead up to International Day of the Midwife as they raised funds for maternity services.

Last year, the team started a new tradition of running a bake sale at University Hospital Geelong, culminating with a bike ride to support their department’s efforts to improve birth experiences for Geelong mums.

This year was another overwhelming success, with the group raising more than $3500 for products that will enhancement comfort and relaxation during labour.

Last year’s efforts purchased salt therapy lamps, aromatherapies and diffusers, local artworks, reading materials, music speakers as well as other pieces of equipment to support women during birth and their post-natal care.
