  Magdalena Janczyk is the new midwife at the Hetherington Surgery. Magdalena is Polish and came to the UK six years ago. We interviewed Magdalena about her life and her plans for Hetherington.   Interviewer: Hi Magdalena. Why did you come to live in England? Magda: Iím sorry to say it had nothing to do with medicine and health and everything to do with romance. When I was working as a nurse in a hospital in Krakow I met my husband, Ben, who was a visiting surgeon. After his visit he managed to transfer to Warsaw and when we were married we lived there for six years. Then last year Ben had to come back to the UK so we decided to relocate the whole family. Ben now works at St Johnís hospital in York.   I: Do you live here or in York? M: We have two children and we decided we wanted to make sure they didnít lose their links to Poland and its culture. There are quite a lot of Poles in York, including a cultural centre so we thought it would be better to live there. However, York is only ten miles away and I have my own car so itís not a problem. And if my car breaks down, thereís always a good bus service.   I: Why did you become a midwife? M: Having my two children was a fantastic experience and I felt that I wanted to share this experience with others and help them have a healthy, safe and happy experience with the birth of their children. It is still true that in many countries there is no one there to help the family. The job of a midwife is not only about the birth, itís also about preparing parents and helping them after the birth. Itís a hard time for parents as they will have never experienced anything like this before.   I: What do you think of Hetherington and what are you hoping to do here? M: Hetherington is a lovely village and the people here have been very welcoming and friendly. Of course I wonít only be working in Hetherington but also in all the other villages nearby. For the last three years there hasnít been a local midwife and Iím sure that has been quite hard. I hope that now we can make sure we can support all the families in this area. We will start prenatal classes in the next three weeks and I will be visiting all the families in the area over the next few months. If anyone wants to talk to me before that, they can contact me at the surgery.
