Why did you create this book?
North York General Hospital is a leader in maternal newborn care delivering thousands of babies each year, and we know that there are so many things parents don’t expect when having a baby, despite how much research they may do. We created this book to be a helpful resource for new parents and to make the unexpected a little more expected for those growing their families. It’s all in honour of our $32 million fundraising campaign to transform our aging Labour & Delivery and Post-Partum Units into a modern new Birthing Centre.

Why didn’t my submission make it into the book?
If you submitted something but don’t see it in this book, it’s simply because we didn’t have room for the hundreds of submissions we received. But we did include a variety of experiences that represent many perspectives, and you can see even more in our online gallery.
