APP are delighted to announce that we have been chosen to be University of Bradford Midwifery Society's Charity of the Year for 2017-18!
The University of Bradford Midwifery Society was established to support and unite midwifery students and professionals, and create a dynamic and energetic forum for shared learning and development. They say: 'The impact of the society continues to grow momentum, creating a global village that empowers its individuals. This strength and passion leads to greater advocacy for women; best practice and informed choice; and committed and compassionate care for all.
'The charity we have chosen is Action on Postpartum Psychosis, an amazing charity who support women and their families who are affected by postpartum psychosis. Our committee would like to raise awareness and focus on perinatal mental health and for it to be the theme of many of our events that we have planned for this year.'
We are told the first event in the diary will be Freshers Week, where they recruit their newest cohort to the midwifery society - you can find out more via their website here, or on their Facebook and Twitter pages.
APP are really thrilled to have been chosen as their Charity of the Year and we can't wait to get involved with all their events and activities throughout the next twelve months...watch this space!
