Words from Midwife

The words from the midwife who I worked together at each birth.
I will keep adding on.

★ It has been a huge pleasure to have Junko with us today and has massively helped us to care for M. She is incredibly receptive to her client's needs and knows everything about their wishes. She has such a loving close relationship with her client that I actually thought she was family! She was quickly and accurately been able to translate all medical terminology today between her clients and every member of the obstetric team. Would love to see you on QCCH labour ward again!

★ It was a pleasure working Junko, I have worked with you before and your presence fills me with confidence. It is beautiful to see the bond with your client as well. Thank you and hopefully see you again. (Marcia at Queen Charlottes Dec'22)

★ As a student midwife Junko really assisted me in providing Y the best care. When Y was unable to communicate Junko was able to advocate for Y. You could see they have build a strong relationship , and me and Junko worked in a partnership to safely deliver her beatuiful son. Junko has calming nature which was beneficial to Y, and knew when to comfort when the pain was intense. Me neither Y couldn't have achieved such a beautiful birth without the help of Junko. Hope to see her in the near future. ★★★★★5stars. (student midwife at Queen Charlottes Dec'22)
