WaterWipes® is proud to launch the third annual Pure Foundation Fund, a bursary fund in the United Kingdom and Ireland which honours our great protectors – healthcare professionals involved in the pregnancy, birth and postnatal journey.
Healthcare professionals (HCPs) providing maternity, neonatal and postnatal care improve and save the lives of women and babies around the world. For pregnant women that have questions or concerns, HCPs take the time to really listen and understand their concerns, answer all questions great or small and provide comfort every step of the way.
For nervous mothers giving birth, HCPs provide a calm presence and kindness to successfully usher them through their delivery. For new mums wondering if their baby is sleeping too much or eating enough, HCPs provide them with guidance and reassurance. When illness strikes or medical conditions arise, HCPs provide care and support during these critical and vulnerable moments.
HCPs are the great protectors of our health and our future generations. That is why WaterWipes® wants to celebrate these extraordinary professionals.
There will be one winner for the United Kingdom and one winner for Ireland.
You can nominate yourself or another healthcare professional that has provided outstanding maternity, neonatal or postnatal care.
Nominations for both the United Kingdom and Ireland funds are now closed. Nominated winners will be contacted via WaterWipes® PR agency, Fleishman Hillard, if they have been nominated.
Claire Slater, Midwife at Worcestershire Royal Hospital and Community Midwife at Princess of Wales Community Hospital, was nominated by patient and first-time LGBTQ+ parent, Holly. Claire for her compassion and support during the birth of Holly’s son, Dylan. During her pregnancy, Claire ensured that Holly received support for her mental wellbeing.
It was a real joy and genuine privilege to be able to care for and to support Holly and her lovely partner through their pregnancy and also since the birth of beautiful baby Dylan.Claire Slater, Redditch Midwife
