We're delighted to have provided a multi-birth cot for the maternity unit at Lister Hospital.

The multiple pregnancy team have welcomed the new cot as it will help newborn twins (or more!) bond in those important first few days.

Sleeping together in one cot can also help the babies stabilise their heart rates and regulate their body temperatures. It also helps the parents caring for them having them together in one cot.
