One year on from award for Bereavement Midwife


One year ago today we brought you the news that Nicky Taylor, who works on the Eden Suite at Heartlands Hospital, had won Best Midwife at the Who Cares Wins Awards!

One year on, Nicky is still working hard to provide the very best care possible to parents who have experienced a bereavement through neonatal death, stillbirth or miscarriage.

Nicky has recently completed a course through the Institute of Counselling, in Counselling Skills and Grief and Bereavement Counselling support, which have been funded by Heartlands Hospital Charity.

Nicky said: "Being able to access this training has extended my knowledge in relation to bereavement support and also taught me a number of alternative approaches which I hope to be able to utilise when care for families.

"It is so important to give the best support possible to families during and after this very emotional experience."

Sian Averill, Fundraising Manager at Heartlands Hospital Charity, said: "We are so proud to have been able to support Nicky through this training. She is an incredible midwife and the team on the Eden Suite provide an amazing level of care for families."
