The baby didn't notice .

THE latest extension to St. Teresa's Maternity Hospital, Wimbledon, S.W. London, was opened last week by Lady Dorothy Macmillan, wife of the Prime Minister.

The cheerful sister weighing the baby is Sister Bernardine, one of the Sisters of St. Anne who serve the hospital under the matron, Mother Mary Agnes.

This is the third major extension to the hospital completed in the past 10 years and during the same period more than 8,000 mothers have brought their babies into the world there.

Nearly all the mothers, when a new baby has been expected, have returned there again.

The hospital, which caters for all denominations, has a double mission, to bring the mother safely through her confinement, and, secondly, in peaceful and homely surroundings to give her the means of going home to face the extra duties entailed with a new baby.
