Recapping on our International Day of the Midwife and International Nurses Day Celebrations!

We recently celebrated International Day of the Midwife on 5th May 2024 and International Nurses Day on 12th May 2024. From new born babies and student midwives to nursing through the ages and internationally educated nursing cafe awards… here’s a recap of the celebrations!


To kick off International Day of the Midwife, we asked our followers to share some love for a midwife that deserves it in the comments. They did not hold back!

  • “Tracey delivered our son back in 2022. She was amazing. And community midwife Sue visited us post birth a couple of times and she was the best xx”
  • “Won’t forget Lyn, Jackie and Caroline for the care during my pregnancy and for delivering my 2 sons back in 1995 & 1997 - thank you xxx”
  • “I had our baby boy 5 days ago, our midwife that delivered him Ellie was absolutly fantastic looking after me and delivering him safe, she was so caring overall had a fantastic experience at the grange. Big up to all the other midwives too. X”

Dilly is a student Midwife who decided to follow her dreams of becoming a midwife in lockdown:



Shoutout to all the fantastic midwives, maternity support workers and student midwives in our Health Board who work so hard to support mums and babies during a very special time in their lives. 



On International Nurses Day, our nursing staff received an overwhelming number of positive comments and message of thanks on our social media channels. Read a few below:

  • “Currently a patient in the Grange hospital and would like to thank all the fabulous nurses on ward B0 for looking after me for the past week.”
  • “Happy nurses day! Thank you all for the hard work you do. You do amazing jobs under great pressure. I appreciate each and everyone of you. Have a good day xx”
  • “Happy International Nurses Day to all the wonderful nursing teams who do a fantastic job. Where would we be without you, thank you xx”

Our Internationally Educated Nurses held a special ceremony to celebrate the day.



Many of our nursing staff paid tribute to nurses of the past by wearing older nursing uniforms for the day!
