A Pailsey NHS worker received a prestigious award.

Caroline Judge has been named Midwife of the Year 2024 at The Mariposa Trust Awards.

Working as a charge midwife at the Royal Alexandra Maternity Unit in Paisley, she cares for women across Greater Glasgow and Clyde and their families when they experience loss in their pregnancy and birth journey.

She introduced sibling boxes for brothers and sisters with the support of various charities and she is passionate about progressing the service that provides follow-up care and support for women once they leave the hospital.

Caroline said: “I was aware that the event had received a record number of nominations for this award, so I was very surprised when my name was called.

“I found the night inspirational being surrounded by so many incredible people who care for families with bereavement and do such an amazing job.

“I am forever grateful to the person who nominated me.”

Laura Flynn, lead midwife for NHSGGC, said: “Supporting families through their loss in pregnancy is a hugely important part of our work.

“Caroline leading the charge on many of our initiatives, to provide the level of care that our women and families need, is something that is worth recognising.

“Caroline has been a dedicated midwife in the RAH for many years and the team are so proud that she has been commended for the amazing work she does.”

The Mariposa Trust exists to ensure that each baby who has died during pregnancy or early in life is recognised and that the parents, extended family, and friends receive the support they need for as long as they need it.

The awards recognise midwives, nurses, bereavement midwives, doctors and community members who have gone above and beyond in the care and support they have provided for people who have experienced baby loss.
