Mrs Adcock is the lead clinician for the delivery suite and Rainbow Clinic and has worked tirelessly to champion the services and support the families involved.
She said: “I was very touched to be nominated and shortlisted for this award and deeply honoured to have received the Special Recognition Award.
“I work very closely with Carolyn and the bereavement midwives to support families both when they are facing the desperately sad loss of their baby, or babies, and then during their subsequent pregnancies.   
“We are so encouraged at what this award nomination represents as we strive as a team to provide the best care and support for all those we care for.
“The awards ceremony was a fantastic evening, celebrating the work of this fantastic charity and the award presentations.”
KGH’s Director of Midwifery, Mara Tonks, said: “Congratulations to Kirsty on getting the Special Recognition Award against some very tough competition from across the country.
