Community support for maternity unit

Members of the Arran community have shown their support for the island’s maternity unit with the donation of new equipment

Presenting midwife Elaine Kelso with the equipment at Arran War Memorial Hospital were three mums, who have used the unit, and Jim Arnold and Sandra Hall from the Isle of Arran Hospital Supporters’ League.

TJ Lambie, Kirsty Park and Kitty Pointer-Dalton donated a comfortable chair for new dads to make use of when meeting their newborn for the first time. The chair and footstool idea came about after TJ’s husband commented on meeting his child for the first time on a standard NHS chair. Believing that she could make the experience more comfortable for new dads, TJ said: ‘After giving birth my husband got to cradle our newborn, and, while it was a magical moment, it could have been a more comfortable experience. Hopefully this new chair will add to the first time bonding experience for Arran fathers.
