Nominations are now open!
If you are a healthcare professional and would like to nominate yourself or a colleague, read more below. If you are a new or expectant parent, you can also nominate a healthcare professional involved in your pre or post-pregnancy journey.
The COVID-19 health crisis has highlighted the importance of human connection. The pandemic has opened people’s eyes to the dedication of our healthcare heroes who have gone above and beyond to provide support, compassion and care for others.
A whole host of healthcare professionals are involved in the pregnancy, birth and post-natal journey; including midwives, doctors, nurses, surgeons, anaesthetists, obstetricians, neonatal professionals and health visitors. These are the hands that touch the lives of expectant and new parents, both physically and emotionally. From the first scans and antenatal care; to the hands that deliver the baby, make the c-section incision, and comfort a premature baby. These are the hands that bring so many lives into the world, yet often remain anonymous. That is why WaterWipes want to recognise and celebrate the incredible work maternity and neonatal healthcare professionals do every day – to put faces and names to these hands and to tell the remarkable stories of the lives they have touched.
The grant comprises of:
USD 2000 for their department to improve the care of parents and babies. For example, purchase equipment, provide resources for parents, fund training, improve practice / care or support further research relating to pregnancy, baby care and neonatal care.
