Vice-Chancellor Commends Midwifery Student
The Vice-Chancellor, Professor Deborah Terry, has commended midwifery student, Ms Samantha Conway, for her exemplary professionalism in supporting two new parents in the stressful delivery of their baby daughter at Bentley Health Service.
The parents wrote to Professor Terry expressing their gratitude for Ms Conway’s care, and noting she had gone ‘above and beyond’ during the birth of their daughter by diligently supporting the supervising midwife and comforting them during the delivery. She stayed past her shift to help the new parents settle their baby when they returned to their ward, and followed up with the family the following day despite not being assigned to their care.
