Sometimes mums-to-be – and dads-to-be for that matter – have questions they want to ask a midwife.  However, when it comes to the consultations sometimes they forget the questions they wanted to ask, or they might be too embarrassed. 

On Tuesday 5 May, between 10.00am and 1.00pm, the Rotherham community will  have the opportunity to ‘meet the midwife’ at the Mamas and Papas store in Parkgate Shopping Centre, Rotherham.

The Rotherham NHS Foundation Trust’s Supervisors of Midwives and Community Midwives will be available to answer questions and provide information and advice to the new mothers and fathers, pregnant ladies and those who are planning a family.

Rotherham’s student midwife, Rosie Hotchin, will also be on hand on International Midwives’ Day on 5 May between 9am and 5pm to answer tweeted questions from the public through The Rotherham NHS Foundation Trust’s Twitter account.   

All you have to do to ask the midwife is tweet your question to @RotherhamNHS_FT  and Rosie will answer as many questions as she can during the day. 

If there are too many for her to answer during the day, we will try and get the night shift to answer some, depending on how many ladies go into labour that evening! 

Rosie recently came second in the Royal College of Midwives’ Student Midwife of the Year award and has been shortlisted for the final of the Nursing Times’ "Student Midwife of the Year":  she’ll find out how she’s done on 5 May.
