Baby in Hurry!

Another little catch up for the Team….
This lovely mum considered all her options and chose the pathway that felt right for her. And this little one decided that he wasn’t to be dictated to with timings. So with support from our colleagues at Royal Surrey, she welcomed her little boy in the pool in MLU as we arrived to support her too. We discharged her home within a few hours of birth and continue her postnatal care at home.

Made with Love

This Amazing Mama was supported in MLU, by us, as she welcomed her little boy earthside in the pool. A few hours later she was home and tucked up in her own bed and today we said a sad farewell as we discharged her from our care.
This Gorgeous hat and bootie set was knitted by grandma as a snuggly ‘hug’ until she is able to meet him in person when COVID restrictions are eased.

A sad farewell for the team as we discharged this lovely family from our care. Having been ‘with us’ for 3 of her pregnancies, we were privileged to be able to support her at The Royal Surrey where she welcomed her little girl earthside . With a busy, excited bunch of siblings to welcome her home and plan many adventures ahead.
