Yesterday afternoon the Rainbow Ward at St. Bernard’s Hospital unveiled two brand new breastfeeding chairs that were purchased by the GHA with funds donated by Babystepps, the newly formed charity that focuses on pregnancy and early parenthood.
Director of nursing Freddie Pitto thanked Louise MacLaren and Francesca Cano of BabyStepps for their continued support. He insisted that their work with the GHA does not go unnoticed.
The donated funds also went towards Christmas presents and a party last year, for long-term patients of the ward.
Both chairs recline and have already proved useful and comfortable for one new mother in the ward.
