The Trust's midwifery team has recently won two prizes at the first ever London Maternity and Midwifery awards, which are part of the London Maternity and Midwifery Festival.
The Lewisham “Indigo” Midwifery team won the team award, which recognises a midwifery leader, team or unit for their achievement in midwifery or maternity practice. The team were recognised for providing excellent support for vulnerable women, focusing on helping women who are 19 and under and who have moderate to severe mental health problems and/or learning disabilities, and/or suffer from domestic violence. These women are identified early in their care and the Indigo team ensures they get the support they need for a successful birth and childcare.
Amy Robson, QEH student midwife, won the student midwife award, which recognises a student midwife who has grown in confidence during her studies but always puts patients at the heart of care.
Helen knower, Director of Midwifery, said: “Congratulations to Indigo Midwifery team and Amy for scooping both prizes – this is a fantastic achievement. I am extremely proud of them both for their dedication and commitment to vulnerable mothers, babies and their families.”
