NHS Tayside midwife Michelle wins award

Michelle with Julie and baby Carys

An NHS Tayside midwife has won a Royal College of Midwives award.

Angus-based Michelle Cater received the Emma’s Diary Mum’s Midwife of the Year 2018 for the Scottish region for the support she gave local mum Julie Davidson.

The pair first met a decade ago when Michelle supported Julie through the heartache of losing twins after going into premature labour.

Two years later, Julie gave birth to son Finn, again with the support of Michelle.

The midwife also supported Julie through the arrival of second son, Luka, and two miscarriages before the arrival of her third child, daughter Carys.
