100th arrival at new birth centre

100th arrival at new birth centre

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.”
