A Norwich hospital’s specialist birthing unit marked its first birthday last week by welcoming its 1,187th arrival.

Cody Jarmy was born to parents Gemma Davison and Shane Jarmy at 7.31am on August 8, 12 months after the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital’s midwifery-led birthing unit (MLBU) opened its doors.

The MLBU offers a home-from-home environment in which to have a natural birth to women who are healthy with a straightforward pregnancy.

Julie Mansfield, MLBU team leader, said the unit’s philosophy was to give one-to-one care for natural births, with the security of medical assistance nearby if necessary.

A fundraising birthday party will be held on September 15.
