    Weʼve raised £2,280 to Provide a more comfortable and welcoming environment for mums and their families who need high dependency care in our delivery suite

    Knowsley, UK
    Funded on Tuesday, 6th November 2018

    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

    Story

    We are a group of 13 midwives who range from age 23 to 55 years, very fit, quite fit and quite unfit, just under 5ft to 6ft tall but for all our differences we have a mutual goal of completing the Tough Mudder on Sunday 9th September at Cholmondeley Castle in Cheshire. We are fundraising for our HDU (high dependency room) within our delivery suite. Not all mums sail through pregnancy and birth and require additional support to recover, this may mean being cared for in the HDU, although we have the skills and medical equipment to provide this specialist care the room is not conducive to comfort for mums and their birth partners who may have extended stays. Many of the mums are bed bound or have limited mobility, so we have some plans to improve the environment and therefore the experience for them and their families. It depends very much on how much we raise but initial plans will be for alongside cots which enable babies to be cared for safely close to mums and maybe a sofa bed for partners. However, we will ask mums who have been cared for in our unit what would have improved their stay with us.

    The fundraising is being done under the watchful eye of the local St. Helens and Knowsley Royal College of Midwives branch with 100% of donation going to this cause.

    We have a techy guy helping us (one with the beard) setting up a twitter and blog page which we will add to this post once up and running so you can keep an eye on our progress.

    Many thanks for taking the time to read this and any donation you can make is fab.

      https:/m.youtube.com/watch?v=TyFG6Tjh9dw&feature=youtu.be We knew it would be muddy but here is just how muddy tough mudder really was :-) The girls from the clan can not thank you all enough for your support, the funds raised exceeded our expectation and will be used with advice from mums and families who have used the HDU and for those who care for them. We aim to make the environment more homely and comfortable which will ease some of the stress and anxiety that women and their families experience when needing this level of care.

      #whistonwombtangclan completed a 6 hour 10 mile 20 obstacles Tough Mudder on behalf of the women who need HDU care on our maternity unit. The midwives were amazing and are so very proud of themselves and each other. The teamwork was outstanding and we shall be reliving the memories and the bruises for quite a while. We are looking to have made upto £2000 for this worthy cause and I for one think we did a fantastic job 😊
