Launched in December 2012, the Countess of Chester Hospital's Babygrow Appeal aims to raise £3 million to build a new Neonatal Unit more than double the size of the current one.

The new facility will provide patients and their families with a more spacious environment and a greater degree of privacy.

It will have its own separate entrance and will include a counselling room and play room for siblings, along with larger nurseries and areas for families to have some quiet time.
