THERE were 237 babies born in Wirral in April 2024 – did you welcome a new arrival?

Wirral University Teaching Hospital NHS Foundation Trust collates all the baby-related data every month detailing how many babies are born – boys and girls – whether there are any sets of twins or triplets and how babies are delivered.

There are stats for the number of babies born at Wirral Women and Children’s Hospital and how many are born at home or at Seacombe Birth Centre as well as the how many new arrivals were breast fed.

They also record the busiest day each month for births and whether babies are born on their due date, a little early or a little late.

There were 237 babies born in Wirral last month – 107 boys and 130 girls with two sets of twins.

Some 27 were vaginal births with 113 caesarean sections and 97 babies were born via ventouse or forceps delivery with 102 inductions.

There were four home or community births and six water births and 150 babies were breast fed.

Only seven babies arrived on their due date with 176 arriving early and 54 coming late.

April 10 was the busiest day of the month with 14 babies being welcomed into the world.
