The warmest of welcomes for our Christmas Day new arrivals

Newborn babies at Epsom and St Helier hospitals made their parents’ Christmas that little bit more magical as they were welcomed into the world on Christmas Day.

A total of five babies were born across the Trust on Friday 25 December, with two babies born at Epsom Hospital and three at St Helier. To celebrate their timely arrivals at this important time of year, the maternity staff presented the babies with a teddy bear and a special message as a keepsake. 

Maternity Matron, Mary Willocks said: “Every baby born at the Trust is very special to their parents and to all the maternity staff too, but there is always something wonderful about having a baby on this date.

“Midwives and hospital staff will certainly need a rest at the end of their Christmas shifts this year. This has been a challenging year for everyone in maternity, and we have put many additional measures in place to ensure our wards are safe and welcoming for parents-to-be and new families. It is always great to welcome a new life into the world, and even more so for staff who work over the festive period”.

Sara and John Mackay from Coulsdon were delighted to welcome their baby boy, Arlo Daniel Mackay, who arrived at Epsom hospital at 10:11am on Christmas morning, weighing 3.26kg/7lbs13oz.
