THE new maternity unit at Dewsbury Hospital has celebrated the delivery of its 100th baby since opening.
Baby girl Anam Ahmad brought up the milestone at the £1.38m Bronte Birth Centre.
Her mum Ierrum Ahmad, from Staincliffe, said: “I had no idea my little one was the 100th baby. I think a midwife mentioned it when I came in but it was after Anam was born that it registered with me. I guess this makes her even more special.”
Gill Pownall, head of midwifery and nursing, said: “It seems like yesterday we were celebrating the opening and the first birth at Bronte and here we are now celebrating the birth of the 100th baby. I am glad to hear Anam and mother are doing well and I look forward to the 1,000th baby.”
