Twin brothers Harrison and Arthur and their parents Sarah and Matt have been on quite the journey at #RBWH. Born on 4 January at just 26 weeks and five days old, the twins weighed just 454 grams and 702 grams respectively. Now, 100 days since they were born, they weigh more than four times their birth weight! 🤗
 
Mum Sarah said they are so proud of their boys and how far they have come over the past few months.
 
“They were so tiny when they were born that we couldn’t even give them a cuddle for the first few weeks. Having a premmie baby is such an intense time – you really feel every emotion.
 
“The biggest thing we’ve learnt is to take one day at a time. At the beginning, we were so worried about all the things that were to come instead of focusing on the positive things that had happened that day. It’s all about the little wins.
 
“The nurses, doctors and support staff at RBWH have been incredible. Well be forever grateful for what they have done for our boys.
 
The family are looking forward to when the twins are strong enough to be transferred to a hospital closer to their home on the Sunshine Coast. Wishing you all the very best, Sarah, Matt, Harrison and Arthur ❤

Meet Maisie 🎀 Parents Amber and Shannon were very excited to meet their little girl, but not as excited as she was to meet them!

I started having contractions at home, I noticed they started coming on really quickly and I knew we wouldnt get the hospital in time. Not long after calling an ambulance, and only two pushes later, Maisie was with us! Amber said.

The ambulance took us straight to #RBWH where they took care of us both. Im really looking forward to taking her back home so she can meet her older sister and brother.

Jaye is one of our graduate registered nurses who have started their career at Metro North, diving head first into her new role at #RBWH where she has been vaccinating frontline workers against COVID-19. 🏥 Jaye and her colleagues have vaccinated thousands of people over the past couple of weeks, and will now start vaccinating those in the Phase 1b cohort. Thanks for your hard work to keep us all safe, Jaye! 👏

Keit and Sirisha are just two of the many friendly faces making the #RBWH vaccine hub run like clockwork this week. Theyve been part of delivering more than 4,000 vaccines to staff! 💉 In their roles theyve been checking people in, rebooking people for their second dose, and checking them out after their observation period has finished. 

Lets give it up for all the people delivering vaccines this week this #ShoutoutSaturday! 👏

Run like clock work. Great team

Are they open today?

Had my jab on Friday - very impressed with the efficient and friendly staff who indeed had things running like clockwork.

Maybe they should give advice to metro south who seem to be making a mess of the role out there

Parents Lucy and Joe are bouncing around with excitement at the birth of their second son Bodhi. 🐇 Bodhi was born at #RBWH on 29 March at 4.01 am weighing 8.9 lbs. Mum Lucy is excited to hopefully be heading home on Saturday, just in time for Easter Sunday. 🍫🏡

Its been great to have some quality bonding time with Bodhi, but Im looking forward to going home, she said. 

Im mostly excited for our 5-year-old, Tanner, to meet his baby brother. I dont think he quite understands exactly what it all means just yet!

Join us in celebrating the safe arrival of baby Bodhi this #FeelGoodFriday. 🤗
