A special congratulations to the nine families from Luton who celebrated the arrival of their babies at the L&D on Christmas Day.
Sophia Kvalitiene was the first to arrive at 01.07 on Christmas morning. Weighing in at 2610gm she is pictured with her mother Jurate.
Oleg Karpienko was born at 14.52 and weighed 3834gm. He is pictured with Mum Emilia, Dad Arek and brother Dominik.
And Magdalene Samotys gave birth to 3120gm Victoria Kwiecien on Christmas evening at 17.37 – Victoria is pictured with Dad Michal.
To families of all our patients, we wanted to give a reminder that sadly, at both Bedford and the Luton & Dunstable University Hospital, we are still unable to allow any visitors on site, unless there are exceptional circumstances, for example in maternity or children’s departments, or for those patients who are receiving palliative treatment at the end of their lives, on a case-by-case basis.
At both our hospitals changes are being made to support services, and we would now ask that you contact the wards using the direct lines found here for Bedford and here for Luton and Dunstable University Hospital.
