Hats off to Valley midwives

By EMMA CORNFORD

ALMOST everyone has had contact with a midwife, be it when you were born or when you have children of your own.

Last Thursday midwives around the Clarence Valley celebrated their profession during International Midwives Day.

Robert Chesworth, a midwife at Grafton Base Hospital, said he enjoyed his career because it differed from day to day.

"Every person and every baby is different and you're helping with a natural, healthy event," he said.

The former teacher has been nursing for around 28 years and has been in midwifery for around 20 years.

"If I can make it a little bit easier for the parents to be, then I've achieved my goal and it's a really positive form of nursing."
