Union Street hold UK Mum Awards 2023

6 Oct 2023

On Thursday 5 October 2023, the prestigious annual UK Mum Awards was held at the RCOG Union Street building. The awards brought together an aspiring array of winners from across the country to honour outstanding collaborative efforts in maternity care.

Baby Lifeline is a unique national charity whose mission is to make care safer and better for pregnant women, pregnant people, and newborn babies all over the UK. It does this by supporting and working with NHS professionals at the heart of care – buying equipment, developing and providing critical training, and conducting research.

The UK MUM Awards serve as a heart-warming opportunity for families to thank and celebrate those amazing professionals who really made a difference during their pregnancy, birth and the first few weeks of their baby’s life.

The awards comprised on a winner from each region across the UK, one from the community, an overall national award and one special Baby Lifeline Training award which recognised investment in the workforce.

The judging panel for the awards consisted of Dr Ranee Thakar, president of the RCOG as well as Donna Ockenden, Dame Ruth May, Keith Bromwich, Gill Walton CBE, Guy Forster, Suzanne White, Dr Christopher Dewhurst and Dr Nick Tait.

Dr Ranee Thakar, President of the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists, said: “Baby Lifeline does simply incredible work to champion midwives, obstetricians, neonatal doctors and nurses, anaesthetists, GPs and paramedics in the work they do to deliver babies safely, and care for mothers and birthing people. The College is proud to work alongside them.

“I had the great privilege of sitting on the MUM Awards judging panel this year, with many esteemed colleagues. These awards epitomise the very essence of all those working in maternity services across the UK. It is clear that, collectively, we recognise the enormous privilege of looking after women during one of the most important times of their lives. These are undoubtedly difficult times the NHS is facing however the winners demonstrate the incredible work that is achievable with working as one team within maternity units.”
