WaterWipes, the world’s purest baby wipes is proud to launch the Pure Foundation Fund, a new bursary scheme in the UK and Ireland, which celebrates and recognises the great work of healthcare professionals caring for new parents and their babies.

Nominations are now open

If you are a new or expectant parent and would like to nominate a healthcare professional working in the UK or a nurse or midwife in Ireland involved in your pre-pregnancy, birth or post-pregnancy journey read more below. If you are a healthcare professional from the UK or Ireland, find out more here. You can also nominate yourself or a colleague here.

The COVID-19 health crisis has highlighted the importance of human connection. The pandemic has opened our 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 nurses, midwives and healthcare professionals are involved in the pregnancy, birth and post-natal journey.

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, care for a premature baby and support parents and newborns when they leave the hospital. 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 of these heroes – to put faces and names to these hands and to tell the remarkable stories of the lives they have touched.

The prizes

Both the winning healthcare professionals from the UK and the winning nurse or midwife in Ireland will receive:

  • £2,500 (UK) or €2,500 (Ireland) for their department to continue 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.

  • A WaterWipes Pure Foundation Fund plaque

Both the expectant or new parents who provided the winning nominations will receive:

  • A six-month supply of WaterWipes
