Gentle Parenting Extraordinary Award for:
‘Most Nurturing Health Professional’
A very special award for a very specail midwife, health visitor, lactation consultant, obstetrician, paediatrician or GP – Sponsored by Weleda UK
This very special award is to honour a very special individual working within the healthcare and lactation field who has gone that extra mile to provide support and upheld the gentle parenting ethos.
Announcing our 2017 winner:
A huge congratulations to Midwife, Liz Gunn, from Tiverton, Devon.
This is what Liz’s nomination said:
“Around 10 years ago now, Liz helped to create the first breastfeeding support group in Tiverton which is still active now. The countless breastfeeding peer support workers she has trained and certified in those years is a credit to her passion to allow every woman from any background the chance to seek and receive support.
To add to this she has created Healthy Babies UK, a not for profit organisation which helps new mums with Breastfeeding support, tongue tie, craniosacral therapy, low supply and even a brand new satellite milk bank. She is also a midwife/lactation consultant at Musgrove hospital.
Raising three children of her own as well as the countless babies and children she has helped in the many years she has been working for women, I believe, means she deserves to be recognised for her hard work and dedication.“
Liz’s amazing prize consists of:-
- An invitation to attend the Weleda Headquarters Insight experience for a wonderful day, tour of the herb gardens, workshops, talks on natural skincare etc. Their Head Office is based in Ilkestone, Derbyshire.
- An overnight stay at a luxury boutique B&B, Hayeswood Lodge, for yourself and a partner (or colleague/friend if you don’t mind sharing).
- And a Goody Bag worth £70 featuring a gorgeous selection of organic Weleda skincare products!
Congratulations again to all our well-deserved winners!
See you again next year.
