Mums & bubs shine for VHA shoot

Posted 03 November 2016

Thanks to the Royal Women’s Hospital for welcoming the VHA for a photo and video shoot which showcased the hospital’s excellent work.

The VHA met some brand new mums and bubs, like Sally whose baby Angela was already starring in her first photo shoot for us at just one day old.

“The nurses and midwives have been fantastic. I couldn’t be happier,” Sally said, pictured with midwife Leah.

New mum Tanya, who welcomed little Nahla just two days earlier, was equally impressed with the level of care.

“I’m actually a nurse myself, so I have had some experience with babies! But they’ve been really helpful here so far,” said Tanya, who previously worked in Darwin helping expectant mothers in detention give birth.
