NEW Year and a new baby – no wonder there were plenty of smiles at Hillingdon Hospital in the early hours of this morning (1).

The first baby born there in 2022  was a boy, Matthew, to mother Jade Sullivan and father Ben Bareham, from Hertfordshire. He is the couple’s first child.

Matthew entered the world at 1.07am and weighed 8lb 1oz. He was delivered by Dr Danya Qureshi, with midwife Lauren Salmon attending.
