Iolanthe Midwifery Trust

I have just heard that I have been successful in my application to the Iolanthe Midwifery Trust for a grant of £1,000 to help in covering the costs of my elective placement in Ghana later this year! I was absolutely thrilled to get the news, and would like to thank the Trust for the support they are giving me, I will do my best to make the most out of my elective, and pass my learning on to my colleagues.

As part of the grant, I will be writing a piece, possibly for publication in MIDIRS or Essence, about maternal mortality in Ghana, reflecting on my time spent with woman in the country. This will be later on in the year, but I will keep you posted.
