It’s been specifically designed to provide an ideal environment for expectant mothers, birthing people and their families.

And Richard Sumray, chair of Bedfordshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, did the honours by officially opening it.

Tara Pauley, head of midwifery for the Bedford Hospital site, said: “Since joining the team at Bedford in 2021, this has been a much-needed dedicated space and I am both delighted we have progressed this work and thankful to all those that made this happen.

"In addition to the creation of this space, we are also launching a nationally-recognised maternity triage system to ensure the best outcomes and safety for those in our care.”
