As the mother of pre term infants many years ago I personally know the emotional roller coaster these families are on. Now as the Executive Director or Nursing & Midwifery MNHHS I am so incredibly proud of the hard work and compassion of the staff who work in our facility to ensure great outcomes!! #proudtobeEDNMS

I've worked at what used to be the RWH for 34 years. The friendships I've made, along with knowledge & experience gained were what I treasured most. I'm very proud of being a retiree of the RBWH!♥️

Janene Farr ..we need one of these for ED 👍🏻

Great Suggestion, it’s the little things like this create a welcoming environment for all people for nuturning & education to the Public. Good Luck well done.

This is a great move and should be immediately incorporated in most hospitals in QLD

Tanya Kitchener what a great idea!! 🙂

This is deadly!

Desley Barba Mum look here Gigi

❤ That's so lovely, what a gorgeous picture. How come Milk Bank never seems to share stories of mums who donate/d but didn't get to bring their little cherubs home? I think that those mums are bloody awesome and pretty special too!

Look at that chub starting to form 😍 what a beautiful picture <3

Kate Taylor 💕 💖 💗
