Maternity Support Worker Month

Maternity Support Worker Month

"The RCM - Supporting Support Workers"


The Royal College of Midwives would like to thank everyone who was involved in MSW Month throughout November 2017.

Our month of activity and celebrations set out to encourage all RCM Branches, our Workplace Reps and our members to work together to host local MSW focused events during the month of November.

Celebrating the Support Worker Role…

During this month we wanted Support Workers in Maternity to be seen as an integral part of the Maternity Team as well as our Union and Professional Organisation.

The RCM welcomes Support Workers including MSWs, HCAs, MAs, Community Support Workers, Nursery Nurses or those in Clerical or Administration Roles in Maternity into membership and to get more involved in our organisation. You can find out more information on our MSW Category of membership here.

This was also an opportunity for us to celebrate the role and encourage many more Support Workers to join us and be part of our growing RCM membership of Support Workers in Bands 1-4.

Our Members, Branches and Workplace reps planned activities to take place during November to celebrate the Support Worker role in the Maternity setting: study days, MSW Awards Ceremony, recruitment event, tea party or community event.
