    My eldest daughter was born in the old hospital and delivered by Prof. Bernard Sheares. She was born on what became National Day – August 9th 1956. The day not the year!

    In those days only those in private rooms were served food. All others had to have their food brought in by family.

    I have good memories of my five day stay there – this was normal in those days nowadays you go home sometimes the same day! Staff and doctors could not do enough for you.

    Amazing to see the huge new building. Doubt it is now holding the record for the highest deliveries in the worl!

    I worked there as a trainee midwife in 1975. My book of case records of babies I delivered in that year, is still a treasure to me to this day.
