On Saturday 9th May George Eliot Hospital’s Maternity Unit held a fun and informative open day for local families and prospective parents.
Facilities at the Maternity Unit were on display and visitors enjoyed an interesting tour of the Maternity Unit, including the Birthing Pool area.
A variety of stalls were on display including maternity advice, antenatal education classes, local charities, specialist support services face painting, tombola, hook-a-duck, a balloon animal artist and much more. Visitors were also entertained by the team from @nker Radio.
One stall included baby clothes knitted by midwives, their mum’s and family members. The friendly Ball of Yarn knitting group from Rugby were also on hand to show their work crafting special hats for new born babies.
A raffle and tombola helped to raise over £430 to support the ongoing development of Maternity Services at the George Eliot Hospital.
Head of Midwifery, Alison Talbot said: “I would like to thank all of the stall holders who gave up their time to showcase the wonderful facilities here at the George Eliot Hospital Maternity Unit and the support services available for prospective parents”.
