Local hospitals welcome new arrivals on Christmas Day

Christmas Day brought a not so silent night for Peterborough City and Hinchingbrooke Hospital Maternity Units as they welcomed the birth of eighteen babies.

At Peterborough City Hospital a total of twelve babies, including 2 sets of twins, were born and at Hinchingbrooke the team saw six babies born.

The festivities started early at Peterborough with the first baby, baby Kakameen (still to be named), a boy, born at 24 minutes past midnight followed by twins Dorothy and Charles, born at 4.44am and 6.13am. 

The maternity team at Hinchingbrooke welcomed their first baby, Rocky, a boy, at 2.02am.

Rowena Chilton, Deputy Head of Midwifery for North West Anglia NHS Foundation Trust, said: “Our staff on the maternity unit are always excited to welcome babies born on Christmas Day. We always decorate the cots to welcome the new arrivals and just help spread some of the festive cheer on the ward.”
