SOFT UK Professional Awards

Every year SOFT UK present awards to professionals for providing Outstanding Clinical Care to families affected by Trisomy 13 or 18. 

This week Chris Rose, Founding Trustee, travelled to Wales to present this award to midwife Kathryn Hennessey.

Kathryn, who works as a midwife at the Royal Glamorgan hospital, was nominated by local parents Tina and Debbie Mountjoy, whose daughter Lacey-May was born with Edwards' Syndrome and lived for only six weeks. Tina said of Kathryn "She is undoubtedly the most caring and compassionate midwife I have ever known. She supported our whole family during a really difficult time, helping us to make precious memories of Lacey-May. She was also there two years later when we went on to have another baby. She made us as comfortable as possible and kept reassuring us that everything would be ok this time around."

Keep your eyes peeled for the full story in our summer newsletter.
