Mums say #ThankYouMidwife with a staff room make-over

Midwives at Ipswich Hospital can now enjoy their breaks in a new-look staff room thanks to grateful mums who nominated the team to receive a special make-over.

Pampers asked people to show their gratitude to midwives on social media by tagging their hospital and using the hashtag #ThankYouMidwife. Ipswich was one of 10 lucky winners to be selected as a result, with the make-over taking place on the Deben Ward last week.

As part of the project, the staff room has been repainted and new sofas, a dining space, coffee table and comfortable chairs added. New blinds have also been installed at the windows to give the room a modern, stylish finish.


Helen Smith, consultant midwife at the hospital, said: “The make-over has made a real difference and has been really well-received by everyone on the ward. It has given us a really comfortable, welcoming space where members of our midwifery team can take a break during a busy shift.

“Our thanks go to everyone who nominated us for the make-over, and to Pampers for helping to create such a lovely new area for our team to enjoy.”
