An Appeal to Midwives and Mothers for 100 Stories over 100 Years



The very popular TV series 'Call the Midwife' has highlighed how incredible midwives are, touching on some of the
difficulties that both midwives and mothers experienced in the 1950s in London.

The RCM NI is calling on the midwives and mothers of Ireland to get in touch with us with their birth stories for a book to be
published in 2018.  The publication is to celebrate 100 years of the Midwives Act in Ireland.  They are trying to collate 100
accounts, experiences and photographs from throughout Ireland.

If you have a story to be told, we would love to hear it, especially if they are around changing birth practices influenced by
both the inception of the NHS and later the Troubles in Northern Ireland.

If you would like to contribute to the book, please send your stories and/or photographs by post to: 

58 Howard Street,

or by email to
