“An Iolanthe award has the potential to be immensely helpful springboard to facilitating real change in practice”

“Going to Uganda taught me about the strength of women and their infants to survive against all odds, and to have faith when things did not go as hoped.”

“I have discovered a new passion, one that will complement and support my midwifery”

“I have acquired midwifery knowledge and skills which will enable me to support women from many different walks of life through their childbearing journey.”

“My elective enabled me to learn about midwifery care with limited resources and staff in a culture different to my own”
