Chesterfield May Day Rally

Chesterfield May Day Rally

The Chesterfield RCM branch joined together for the TUC (Trade Union Council) May Day rally. Midwives participated in a March through Chesterfield Town centre bearing flags in support of the RCM. We also held a stall promoting our efforts as midwives and as a union to provide safe and effective women centered care, promoting normality and keeping woman at the forefront of our care provision. The public were asked to recall experiences which they had encountered with midwives on a poster which was displayed on Chesterfield birth centre for motivation and morale boosting. There was clearly a great deal of admiration and support for the midwifery profession and the local unit. Midwives also offered education on basic life support to parents and a tombola, in aid of women’s aid, made an incredible £190.05. The Chesterfield RCM branch is in the process of officially affiliating with the TUC and are hopeful that this will grow as an annual event.
