Midwifery taster event at Omagh HospitalThe Western Trust Community Midwifery Team are inviting local students and members of the public to a Midwifery Taster event at the Omagh Hospital and Primary Care Complex on Friday 3 May 2019 from 12.30pm to 2.30pm in the Main Foyer of the hospital as part of celebrations to mark the Royal College of Midwives (RCM) International Day of the Midwife.

Donna Kelly, Community Midwife said: “We are looking forward to welcoming local students who are interested in a career in midwifery to come along and have a chat with our community midwives to give an insight into the varied role of a midwife. Community Midwives play a pivotal role in supporting new parents during pregnancy, childbirth and early years of babies development and provide advice and support on the ‘Getting Ready for Baby’ programme, hypnobirthing, aqua natal, breastfeeding workshops, reflexology and Maternal Fetal assessment.”

Donna added: “We will be holding a cake and bun sale on the day with all proceeds going to TinyLife a charity very close to our hearts which provides support to parents of premature babies in the local area.”
