Rebeccah Davies is the current RCM President
In her 30 years of midwifery experience, Rebeccah Davis has undertaken several supporting roles, which include Supervision of Midwifery and qualification as a Professional Midwifery Advisor (PMA).
Rebeccah became an RCM Workplace Representative in 2018 to represent colleagues in need of support with change that had a negative impact in their work environment. This achieved a positive outcome and subsequently, the Shropshire RCM Branch committee developed.
Rebeccah has recently retired from her role as a Labour Ward Co-Ordinator at Shrewsbury and Telford Hospital NHS Trust and hopes to bring honesty, integrity, experience and passion to her new role as RCM President.
Since retiring clinically as Delivery Suite Coordinator in July 2020 she was elected as Joint Staffside Chair and currently work collaboratively in developing fair Trust policy, attend JNCC and contribute to Steering Groups on topical issues. Rebeccah continues to contribute to the upskilling and development of the role of maternity support workers (MSW).
In November 2019, Rebeccah presented at the RCM Regional Activists Conference. It outlined our local campaign in how a very successful recruitment drive achieved the lead MSW membership in the country and won the Pecha Kucha Award. In May 2020 on International Day of the Midwife, she received the national RCM Members’ Champion Award. This was a huge honour to gain such recognition.
As an RCM rep at a troubled Trust, Rebeccah recognises the level of support and leadership that is urgently needed to bring about positive change in midwifery practice and culture to improve safety.
