Very First Baby is delivered at The Grange University Hospital

We had a beautiful rainbow yesterday but look at the amazing morning sky that greeted our early risers this morning when they arrived at The Grange University Hospital.

We had such an eventful day at the hospital yesterday, which saw the arrival of our first patients and the birth of our very first baby! Poppy Dorothy Brooks arrived at 12.44pm at The Grange’s Birth Centre, weighing 6lbs 15oz. Poppy is pictured here with her parents Helen Jewell and Tom Brooks.

Poppy was four days overdue- she must’ve been holding on so that she could be our very first Grange baby (and receive a Grange teddy bear!)

Poppy’s parents said “It’s been a lovely experience, every member of staff here has been really nice. It’s a very different experience here at The Grange University Hospital- it’s great.” Congratulations to you all.
