A baby’s skin is much more delicate than your own, so it should be cleaned with only the gentlest and purest elements possible. Made with just two ingredients, 99.9% water and 0.1% fruit extract, WaterWipes are as pure as cotton wool and water but in the convenience of a wipe.
WaterWipes have been carefully designed to be gentle on babies’ sensitive skin. They are the only wipes that contain absolutely no chemicals, just 99.9% water and 0.1% grapefruit seed extract – a natural skin conditioner.
They don’t irritate the skin; instead, they may help avoid nappy rash and other skin conditions. WaterWipes are the only baby wipe to ever be approved by Allergy UK.
Because of this, 97% of midwives believe that WaterWipes are suitable to be used on the skin of newborn babies.*
WaterWipes are the only baby wipe approved by Allergy UK and awarded the National Eczema Association of America’s Seal of Acceptance.

CMV Action - Educate - Vaccinate - Eradicate
Cytomegalovirus (CMV) is a common infection that can infect people of all ages, usually with no long-term effects. However, it is very dangerous to unborn babies and is the most common infection passed from a pregnant woman to her baby. CMV causes more problems than Down’s, Spina Bifida and Cystic Fibrosis, yet few pregnant women and professionals have heard of it.
CMV Action is a small, but dynamic, UK registered charity raising public awareness of cCMV and campaigning for better prevention measures within our health service. We are firmly committed to limiting the devastating impact of this virus for those currently affected and for future generations.
Be Dog Smart is our latest campaign helping families understand more about how to behave around dogs in order to keep themselves safe. We deliver FREE antenatal workshops within the community on how to prepare your dog for your new arrival as well as teaching children how to be safe around dogs. We also provide information and literature to health care professionals free of charge so you can distribute within your communities, as dog safety is important to everyone. Come and see us at the exhibition to find out more information about our education programme.
The IONA Test
The IONA® test is an advanced non-invasive prenatal screening test that helps midwives and other maternity healthcare professionals offer pregnant women peace of mind. The pioneering IONA® test estimates the risk of a fetus having Down’s syndrome or other serious genetic diseases and is developed by Premaitha Health, the leading UK based provider of NIPT. The IONA® test has a higher detection rate and lower false positive rate than existing screening tests, giving pregnant women, their families and their midwives greater confidence in the result and reducing the need for unnecessary invasive follow-up tests and the associated anxiety and stress.
Bio-Oil is an award-winning, specialist skincare treatment that has been clinically proven to improve the appearance of scarring, whether from accidents, burns, caesarean section or post-operative; as well as stretch mark, dehydrated skin and uneven skin tone.
Bio-Oil has been formulated with a blend of essential plant oils and vitamin A and E that are known to be beneficial to skin health and appearance.
Bio-Oil also contains a unique ingredient called PurCellin Oil™, which lowers the viscosity of the formulation so that it can be easily absorbed deeper into the skin, rather than acting superficially on the surface.
The Practising Midwife
The Practising Midwife is the leading journal for midwives and all health professionals connected with pre-conception care, pregnancy, birth and neonatal matters.

Our readers tell us that TPM is quite simply the best journal for staying informed in an eminently readable form.
