Exciting news … it’s our very first #FeelgoodFriday with newborn twins! Rebekah, one of our very own enrolled nurses at Caboolture Hospital, gave birth to identical twin boys last week. 💕
Born at 36.2 weeks, Judah (2.5kg) and Asher (2.9kg) have spent the last 6 days in the Special Care Nursery (SCN) before spending the night with mum last night. This happy little family will head home today.
We wish Rebekah all the best as she settles in at home with her new little ones. 🏡🐣 ... See MoreSee Less

#Caboolture Hospital’s Dr Emma Maguire is an emergency expert when it comes to snake bites, treating a number of patients each year when they’ve inadvertently crossed paths with one. 🐍 As the toxicology lead in her hospital, she’s responsible for making sure patients who present to the ED are okay and assessing whether they’ve been bitten or envenomed.
