It is popular for patients to ask for a photo of me with baby, mum, and dad immediately after birth, or while in hospital postnatally or at the 6-week postnatal visit.
Sadly, for the present unless I am wearing a face mask, this is not possible.
Social distancing is not possible with such photos.
I have recently had many patients ask me for a photo only to be disappointed when I explained this to them.
BUT PLEASE SEND US YOUR BABY PHOTO FOR POSTING. It is a great joy to be sent baby photos. They are wonderful for me and my staff to see. Other patients really enjoy them and find them encouraging.
Once we do not have to worry about social distancing please pop into office for a photo of baby, you, and me.
