Over 4,350 babies are born at Watford General each year. Of these, around 10% are born prematurely.

Vital charitable support helps ensure that these vulnerable babies get the best start in life. The skills and care of the staff are supplemented by the latest equipment and extra comforts which mean that babies and their parents receive a level of care over and above what the NHS alone can afford.
