Wendy's 38 Years of Caring

Wendy’s 38 Years of Caring

After 38 and half years of caring for babies, senior midwife Wendy Moncrieff has retired from the Neonatal Unit at Forth Valley Royal Hospital.

Wendy started her career in general nursing in Aberdeen in 1978 before training as a midwife a few years later. She joined the Neonatal Unit in 1985, first in Stirling Royal Infirmary and later moving to Forth Valley Royal Hospital.

When asked how many babies she has looked after Wendy replied “Thousands! I love caring for them and it’s so nice when people remember you or when they come and see you again. It’s great knowing you’ve helped and had that impact.”

Colleagues in the unit made a photo montage to highlight Wendy’s career through the years, as well as showering her with gifts at three different retiral teas. Her retirement plans are to spend more time with her family, but she has also signed up for a teaching assistant course online and hasn’t ruled out coming back for a bank shift in the future.
