A BABY girl from Stratford is the 100th to be born in the new Bluebell Birth Centre at Warwick Hospital.
Hannah arrived on Wednesday October 11 in the unit which opened in July.
The centre allows parents to give birth in a homely environment rather than a more clinical setting. It includes four different rooms, each with a birthing pool.
New parents Lyndsay and Tom said: “We had a great experience as the birthing room was relaxing and comfortable with soft lighting, Bluetooth speakers and a wonderful pool which meant that we could have the water birth that we wanted.”
“It’s clear the 100th baby milestone meant a huge deal to the Bluebell staff. Louise, one of the midwives, very kindly knitted a lovely bunny and matching hat which Hannah adores.
The Birth and Babies Appeal is funding specialist birth equipment and facilities for the centre and has received tremendous support since launching last year.
South Warwickshire Foundation Trust is calling on the community to help it reach the £200,000 target to ensure the birthing rooms have the best possible environment for women and their families. So far over £165,000 has been donated.
