Hi !
I was born in Loveday Street hospital on May 2nd 1962. My family left England 1969. But my eldest brother returned there today! He has been sending photos and Iíve been looking at archive photos of dear old Brum from my home in the dear ol US of A. I lost my Brummie accent to a Dublin accent!... At least not to an American one!

Hello all
I was a pupil midwife in the late 50's at Loveday street Maternity


On the photographs which someone has posted the Salvation Army Hostel was first on the right


Next was the nurses home    and then the hospital


The curved building at the end was  for staff too


The hospital was for abnormal or problem births


It wasn't an iron lung that that baby was in       it was an incubator with piped oxygen


The nurses home was directly opposite the theatre window (bay window) of the General Hospital as it was then


 Its  now the Children's Hospital


Happy times there and also at Tamworth Hospital ,Dudley Road Hospital  and Good Hope before delivering


 babies at home in Nuneaton  for some years  amongst other duties


It is possible for next of kin to obtain a stillbirth Cerificate from the General Register Office at Southport  price about £11
