Staff in the Maternity Department asked for the League’s support to purchase some ‘kangaroo wraps’ for their new Mums and babies. Research has proved the benefits of skin-to-skin contact from birth and these wraps enable parents to closely bond with their babies at the earliest opportunity.
In April 2017, the department held a skin to skin kangaroo mother care
awareness day and this proved to be very successful, hence a request to the
League to fund a supply for use in the post-natal wards

These wraps are now available for sale in the League of Friends shop in the Main Reception.

Total Donation Value: £1,100
