Surbiton Mums thanked hospital staff for helping deliver their babies with a special present.

The Antenatal Friends wanted to show their appreciation for midwives at Kingston Hospital so enlisted the help of Rock and Rose photography studio in Surbiton for a special snap.

The panoramic picture, which shows the nine new mums with their new-borns, has been sent on to staff in gratitude for their hard work.

Adele Goosen, who gave birth to son Ethan, said the mums wanted to do something as a group to show their appreciation.

She said: "We were all highly complimentary of the midwives and support staff at the Kingston Hospital Maternity Services.

"We were all thinking of what to do when one of the mums, who had bump photos taken at Rock & Rose Photography, suggested that we could give the hospital a photo of our babies. We all loved the idea.

"When we dropped off the gifts, Kingston Hospital staff were pleasantly surprised and said is a lovely gift and a change from the usual flowers and chocolates that they usually get."

Rock and Rose director Orli Kopit said she was happy to help. She said: "It was a fantastic idea and I was grateful to be involved."
