Logan Midwives bid Birthing Suite a fond farewell

11 December 2018

Birth Suite has said goodbye to three of its most beloved midwives heading off for a life in retirement and taking with them more than 130 years of combined service to midwifery services.

Midwifery Unit Manager (MUM) Lisa Maher said the ladies had passed on an amazing amount of experience, knowledge and expertise over the year and wished them happiness in their retirement.

She said Birth Suite would not be the same without Ann Meadows, Rosemary Lappin and Anne Christian.

"Bridget Anne White also retried in March and she had 55 years in nursing and midwifery retiring at 72."
