It may have been the NHS’s 70th birthday on 5th July, but it’s now a day midwife Hayley Kularia will remember forever!
Baby Anayah Lester was born at 9:58am, weighing 6lb 14oz, on Thursday 5th July to proud parents Hayley Kularia and Lewis Lester at New Cross Hospital.
Hayley has worked as a midwife at RWT for nine years, and said she “would not have had her baby anywhere else”.
Hayley said: “I started at New Cross as a midwife nine years ago. I completed my training at Wolverhampton Uni and decided to stick around!
“It’s given me a very different perspective being on the other side – I will come back to work after maternity leave with a real idea of what it’s like to have a baby.
“It all went really well for me, well as well as it can go! It was a lot quicker labour than expected for my first baby.
“My midwife friends Ruth Ella and Linda were there for the birth, along with my partner, and I chose to have a water birth.
“I’m excited, a little bit nervous about being a new mum – we now have all this responsibility,” she said, looking down at little Anayah sleeping contentedly in her arms.
