Two hundred babies are born on a typical month at Blackpool Victoria Hospital – and our colleagues and their families are often among people celebrating a birth.
We asked them to share their beautiful babies with us and these are just some of the pictures we received to mark the 75th birthday of the NHS.
Among the contributors is Medical Examiners’ Officer Paula Dimery who had both her babies at the Vic. Son Jordan was born in January 1996 and her second daughter Abigail in September 2023.
She said: “My stay in hospital the second time inspired me to want to work in the NHS and the following year I began work as a healthcare assistant on Ward B obstetrics and gynaecology. Abigail is now 19 and a healthcare assistant working on Ward C.”
Training Coordinator Andrea Hammond’s son, Harry, was born on New Year’s Eve 2017. “Jade a newly qualified midwife made sure I had the best and most comfortable experience possible,” she said.
“After 15 years of fertility treatment, I then caught naturally. I can never thank Blackpool maternity for all the support and safely delivering our son.”
