International midwives day 2021

“Supporting women and their families through one of the most amazing times in their life is incredible, and it’s a privilege to be a part of the experience!” – Rachel Harris, Broadlands Birth Centre & Southampton Community Midwifery Matron.
Southampton Hospitals Charity were delighted to spoil our wonderful midwives at Princess Anne Hospital with over 3,000 pampering packs gifted to us by Clarins to help celebrate International Midwives Day on 5 May 2021.

Our midwives go above and beyond every single day. They are passionate about what they do.

With your support, we can create a purpose built breastfeeding room in the Royal South Hants hospital for new mums.

We look after 650-700 women at any one time.

This new room will include a comfortable breastfeeding chair, a changing station for the babies, and some soft furnishings to make the room warm and inviting.

It will nurture the bond between new mothers and their newborn babies, and give them privacy away from other outpatients.
