I’d love to help out I can knit one or two or three !! I’ve tried to find pattern and it seems to be confusing how to get into it !!
Hi Isobel, thank you so much for getting in touch. We would be happy to have midwives of any size, shape or colour, knitted, crocheted or crafted. Feel free to decorate as you like. You can follow any pattern, the ones included in the flyer are just for information and have been shared with permission from amygurus blog and wee folk arts website. Please forward any donations to me Sheona Brown University of the West of Scotland, Hamilton Campus, Almada Building Room 3.21 ML3 0JB Thanks again xxxx
Asking for knitted octopuses could help all your prem babies too! Just a thought 😉
wish i could help but did that much knitting f
Why has it just to be Midwives Nurses week starts from the 5th May (international Midwives day & finishes on the 12th international Nurses day & Florence Nightingales birthday so why can’t it be Midwives & Nurses we’re all linked
I don’t knit, but I crochet, so if there’s a crochet pattern I’d definitely give it a go.
Thanks Karlene, we are happy to accept any knitted, crafted or crocheted midwives 🙂 Follow any pattern and decorate in any fashion, size, shape or colour x
Bit confused (doesn’t take much!) but the link says they are needed for the conference in Oct 2016! Are you still collecting them?
The answer is yes. If you want to know what to do with them instead of handing the over to the original conference call fro them contact email@example.com See the comment that Sheona has posted above
I have also been unable to download a pattern, I could certainly do a few by 5th May and could tag a few knitting/crotchet friends into the information
That would be brilliant Fiona!
Hi Fiona, feel free to use any pattern, we have included amygurus and weefolkart as examples, however we are happy to accept any size, shape or colour. Feel free to decorate as you like, all donations gratefully received 🙂 x
That’s the pattern!!
Have you got the pattern for knitted midwife please x
Hi Julie, you can use any pattern you like, you can knit, craft or crochet the midwife, there is a link to a pattern in the comments above. We have included a pattern from weefolkart and from amygurus as examples, but feel free to individualise your midwife. Any size, shape or colour would be perfect for our colourful display in celebration of International Day of the Midwife. Many thanks for your interest in our campaign.

What happens to them after your event please?
Hi Sheila, thanks for your interest in our campaign. We will be offering people the opportunity to provide a forever home for one of the midwives for a small donation. All monies raised will be donated to Kicks Count a charity empowering women in pregnancy. We are hoping for as many mini midwives as possible, of all shapes, sizes and colours.
A very new crochet beginner can I add a picture for the 2017 midwives requests to see if you would have mine . X and is it the same address. Many thanks Caz.
Hi Is there a way I can post you a picture of my crochet midwife to see if you can use it. I’m very new to crochet? How can I add a pic please. Regards Caz.
Hi Caroline, unfortunately, you can’t add a picture here but you can e-mail one to the organiser. firstname.lastname@example.org She will get back to you quite quickly if you do.
Just a quick update to say today we received a donation all the way from Australia, our first Kangaroo midwife, we are delighted. Thank you so much Jan for your kind donation.
