A KING Edward Memorial Hospital (KEMH) midwife has been recognised for her work as part of 2018 International Day of the Midwife celebrations.

Teagan Boyne took out the annual Johnson’s Baby Western Australian Midwife of the Year award.

Ms Boyne is part of a team of midwives providing personalised and individual care to small groups of women throughout their pregnancy and birth journey.

She was nominated for the Midwife of the Year award by new mum Kerin Goddard from Mt Claremont.

“As a young mum I could not have asked for a better midwife than Teagan,” Ms Goddard said.

“Teagan’s caring attitude and her patience and understanding was of great support to me.”

Ms Boyne said the award was an unexpected surprise.

“Getting to know Kerin and her partner and helping to facilitate what they wanted from their experience was an amazing journey,” she said.

“I love being part of a midwifery group practice where I am able to provide continuity of care to women.

“I think it’s something special to be able to get to know a woman and her partner through pregnancy and see them transition to being parents.”
