It’s always exciting to open up your Christmas stocking from Santa on the morning of the 25th.
But these new mums received a very special gift this Christmas this year – with love from some remarkable hospital staff.
This year, nurses at the Magee-Women’s Hospital wrapped their hospital’s newborns in festive beanies and red woollen jumpers, and placed them inside a Christmas stocking, ready to be taken home.
They shared this picture on Facebook, which soon became a viral sensation, seen the world over.
The newborns at Magee-Women’s Hospital.
A message accompanying the pictures read: “‘If you’ve walked through the Magee lobby recently, you may have noticed a group of women surrounded by construction tape.”
“Known as the “Magee Knitters”, the group started in September 2014 with a mission to make caps for the newborn babies at the hospital.”
And if that doesn’t give you Christmas cheer – you’ve only got 369 days to work up to it for next year.
