CGH Midwife, Caitlin Walker, has been honoured by the Australian College of Midwives Gippsland Branch.
The branch has presented Caitlin with the Midwife of the Year award.
The award is part of the International Day of the Midwife celebrations with consumers encouraged to nominate midwives who had provided extra special care to women before, during and after labour.
Caitlin was nominated by two women who said she had a huge impact on their birth experience. Midwife Emma Masters was also nominated for the same reason.
CGH Director of Nursing and Clinical Support Services, Denise McInnes congratulated both women.
“This is a very prestigious award that is well worthy of recognition and we are proud of your achievements,” Denise said.
“Thank you for your contribution to our Women’s & Children’s ward and your ongoing commitment to providing quality maternity services to the members of our community.”
