EXPECTANT and new mums are invited to nominate their midwife or midwifery team for the title Midwife of the Year 2002.

Established in 1997, the award was launched to emphasise the significant work carried out by midwives and allow parents to show their appreciation for all the care, dedication and support their midwife has shown them.

In previous years the award has captured the hearts and imagination of new and expectant parents and this year hopes to build on that success.

The wining midwife or midwifery team will be awarded the title and will receive a total of £1,000 to spend on vital equipment for the unit and a further £1,000 to spend for their own use.
