It's officially day one of the silly season and the #RBWH maternity department has decked the halls from top to bottom with sparkly, shiny and spectacular decorations! 😍🎄🎁

Louise has charged full steam ahead with the decorations under the passionate direction of Jackie and with lots of help from elves (aka midwives). 🏥 Let us know if you're putting up the Christmas tree tonight - we want to see!

I hope Louise O'Beirne is looking after those nice painted walls. Merry Christmas from the level 5 painter.

Why is the Christmas decoration guidelines so different from one Metro North Heath facility to another. Kids ward can't even have tinsel or a Christmas tree. Great work ladies, looks very festive

Merry Chritmas⛄❄️🌟to all the staff at RBWH .Thank you for the work you do to look after consumers❤️

Looks amazing. Well done Louise.

Merry Christmas 🤶 🎄 and happy new year

My first born arrived on Dec 1st 2010 @RBWH he was less than 24hrs old when I walked him around the ward and showed him the christmas tree. Merry Christmas to all the fantastic Midwives ☃️🎅👶

“Before I was diagnosed with cancer in January, I was studying marketing, I always figured it would pay well and there was lots of work. But going through this experience has really put things into perspective. Money doesn’t bring you happiness and all I really want is to be happy. I met a social worker during my treatment who inspired me to study social work instead. Now I just want to help people and make myself and other people happy.”
