Yvonne Creed, midwife manager at Cossham Birth Centre, said: “The first Cossham babies are now a month old and we are so thrilled to welcome them back.
“Our first month of opening has been fantastic – we welcomed 39 babies into the world and parents have absolutely loved the facilities we have here and the homely setting that we can offer.
“It is truly an historic moment – not only as Cossham Birth Centre is the first of its kind in the Bristol area but also because although Cossham Hospital is over 100 years old this is the first time that babies have been born here.”
The birth centre provides a more relaxed setting for women with uncomplicated pregnancies where fathers can stay with their partners after they have given birth.
It is anticipated that 400 to 500 babies will be born in the first year at the centre.
