For more than 50 years, Royal North Shore Hospital (RNSH) midwife Megan Donnelly delivered hundreds of babies.
Now entering retirement, Megan has decided to take on a new challenge – tackling the "one-day cupboard".
"I’m about to attack the one-day cupboard: a cupboard full of things that I promised myself I would get to one day," she said.
"It will keep me busy for a while."
Megan’s first day as a trainee nurse was at RNSH on April 16, 1962, at a time when nurses lived on campus.
After 10 years working as a nurse, Megan wanted to branch out and experience what it was like to work in the maternity ward. This is where she found her love for midwifery and women’s health.
"I was home when I joined midwifery team and I never looked back,’’ she said.
More recently, Megan set up a menopause clinic in the RNSH Ambulatory Care and was nickname Menopause Megan - an expert in all matters relating to menopause.
She said the past 50 years had passed quickly and she was looking forward to retirement.
"The people I have worked with over the years have become family and it has been an honour to serve my community – it has just been an absolute joy," she said.
