Midwives Rottnest 2020 Swim Appeal


Following an incredibly successful campaign in 2019, the King Edward Memorial Hospital midwives will once again be trading their scrubs for swimsuits as they take aim at the 2020 Rottnest Channel Swim.

You can get behind the KEMH midwives and their work to make preterm birth a thing of the past by supporting them here.

Our superfish midwives are also in need of two boats (at least 5.5m, or legally permitted to carry 6 people or more) and two skippers to join their winning team. If you are able to assist please contact Elizabeth Hull here.

Marvelous midwives master Rottnest swim for prems

A group of King Eddies midwives are the toast of the town after they conquered the 2019 Rottnest Channel Swim.
As equally as impressive as completing the gruelling 20km open water swim, was the incredible fundraising result achieved by the group – in total raising more than $10,400 for WIRF’s critical work into preterm birth prevention.
In addition to the group’s online funding efforts which would net more than $6250, the midwives would also source a variety of prizes and hampers for a raffle run through WIRF’s Café, which itself, would raise more than $4150.
