Delivering babies since 1903!

As a dedicated obstetrician, I have the privilege of witnessing the miracle of life every day. From the first flutter of a heartbeat to the joyful cries of newborns, I am honoured to be part of the journey that welcomes new life into the world.

At the San, we have been delivering babies since 1903, and it's a legacy of excellence that we are proud to continue. Our maternity services have been a cornerstone of our hospital, providing compassionate care and support to families for generations.

But delivering babies is more than just a job to me; it's a calling, a passion, and a privilege. I am there for the good times - the laughter, the tears of joy, and the overwhelming sense of love that fills the delivery room. But I am also there for the hard and challenging times - the moments of uncertainty, fear, and vulnerability.

As a community, we have the opportunity to come together and support our tiniest hearts - the newborns who enter this world with hope and promise. Your generous support can make a meaningful difference in their lives and ensure that they receive the best start in life.

Here’s where your support can make a tangible difference:

Enhancing Maternity Care:

We are committed to enhancing our maternity services to ensure that every mother and baby receives the highest standard of care. With your help, we aim to secure funding for essential resources, including:

  • New Incubators: The first hours and days of a newborn’s life are incredibly delicate, especially for premature or ill infants. Advanced incubators can make all the difference in providing a safe and controlled environment for these fragile lives. Your support will enable us to bring state-of-the-art incubators to our Special Care Nursery, saving lives and offering hope to families facing challenging beginnings. Our current ventilators serve more than ## infants every year, but replacement parts are increasingly difficult to find, making the purchase of this new equipment absolutely vital.
  • Breastfeeding Chairs: Providing comfortable and supportive environments for mothers to nurture their babies is essential. Your contribution will help us ensure that every mother has access to quality breastfeeding chairs, fostering bonding and promoting breastfeeding success.
  • Advanced Birthing Beds: The birthing experience is a deeply personal and transformative journey for mothers and families. Advanced birthing beds equipped with adjustable features and ergonomic design not only enhance comfort during labor and delivery but also facilitate optimal positioning for mothers, promoting smoother and safer deliveries.
  • Professional Development and Training: By supporting ongoing education and training programs for our nurses and medical staff, you are investing in the future of maternal and newborn healthcare, ensuring that our team remains at the forefront of innovation and excellence.

By funding these items, we can enhance the quality of care we provide to mothers and their newborns. These essential resources will not only improve patient outcomes but also create a warm and welcoming environment where families can feel supported and empowered.

Every donation, no matter how small, has the power to make a difference. Together, we can continue the legacy of excellence that defines the San and ensure that future generations receive the same level of care and compassion that we have provided for over a century.

Thank you for considering this important cause and for your continued support of the San's maternity services. Your generosity is truly appreciated and will have a lasting impact on the lives of countless families for years to come.

With heartfelt gratitude,

Dr Andrew Booker
