Chester Childbirth Appeal
Chester Childbirth was set up in 1991 and registered with the Charity Commissioners no. 1003772. Since then we have raised £1¾ millions and improved the environment of the hospital for the comfort of the women, babies and children being cared for there. We have provided a Bereavement Suite, and the Snowdrop Room where their baby can be tended. We have upgraded the labours rooms, provided a waterbirth suite, and we share the maintenance of the Baby Memorial Garden that we funded and opened in 2002 with the Miscarriage Support Group and the local council.
Amongst our many completed projects are the building of an Adolescent Unit for the benefit of teenagers being nursed here, opened by the footballer Michael Owen in 2006. Ensuite accommodation has been provided by building the Geoffrey Kelson Wing for the parents of premature babies, the Christopher Wing for the parents, a Comfort Zone Shop/Cafe and Children's play area where patients, their relatives and other visitors can relax away from the clinical areas.
In 2013 we completed the Children's Playground; and Sensory Garden for those with complex medical needs. We received express permission from Her Majesty herself to dedicate this area to HM Queen Elizabeth's II Diamond Jubilee. This was opened in May 2013 by Mr David Briggs Lord Lieutenant for Cheshire.
All our projects are suggested to us by patients, relatives or staff and we have never failed to complete any of them successfully. We welcome support and acknowledge all donations however small.
