Nominations are now open
If you are a new or expectant parent and would like to nominate a healthcare professional working in the USA or Canada involved in your pre-pregnancy, birth, or post-pregnancy journey read more below. If you are a healthcare professional from the USA or Canada, find out more here.
These are the hands that touch the lives of expectant and new parents, both physically and emotionally. From the first scans and prenatal 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 recognize 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.
Two winners will be selected from each country, and the winning healthcare professionals will receive:
• $3,000 (USD) 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
