Any of you who have attended one of our Parentcraft classes is likely to have met Libby, our midwife. She also works at UHW and is trying to promote skin to skin contact or kangaroo care after birth to help bonding with baby and breastfeeding. BUT she needs your help!
Any of you who knit or crochet (or know someone who can) could help us! Just make a baby hat in newborn size and bring it into clinic. The hats will be used to keep babies warm whilst they have a lovely cuddle with their Mum or Dad. Just mark it for the attention of Libby and she will make sure it gets to the right place and is used well.
If you’ve already had your baby, have a sort out when the time comes and see if you have any hats that you no longer need as those would be welcome too.
Ready, get knitting! (By the way if you don’t know how but would like to learn then there are classes at Big Knitters on Wellfield Road in both knitting and crochet. Free patterns are available at www.ravelry.com)
