Greenslopes Maternity Celebrates Fifth Year with Their ‘First Borns’

Greenslopes Private Hospital opened its maternity service five years ago, in February 2013. The hospital has since provided hotel-style facilities through its 26 luxurious single private rooms, all built for the utmost comfort of mothers and newborns.

Greenslopes Maternity, in celebration of their fifth anniversary, recently invited their “first borns” — the first babies born on 26th February for each year that has passed since the maternity service started in 2013.

The staff at the hospital – doctors, midwives, and nurses – had an afternoon tea party with 5-year-old Mia, 4-year-old Lachlan, 3-year-old Isla, and 2-year-old Ava and their parents to celebrate the maternity’s anniversary and the children’s birthdays as well.

“Thank you to Mia (5 years old), Lachlan (4 years old), Isla (3 years old) and Ava (2 years old) for coming along with your mums and dads to say hello and celebrate your birthdays! We were so excited to see midwives, nurses, obstetricians, chaplain & executive staff – thank you for helping to make Greenslopes Maternity wonderful,” Greenslopes said in its announcement.

This year saw more than 5,000 babies born at Greenslopes Maternity within the five years since its opening.
