Extra midwives are drafted in to deal with Cornwall's baby boom.

Duchy health bosses say they are investing in new staff to help them keep up.

Chief Executive of the Royal Cornwall Hospital Lezli Boswell said: "Like many parts of the country, Cornwall currently has a rising birth rate. RCHT is used to fluctuations in demand for our maternity services and we plan accordingly as well as use our flexible workforce when needed.

"We have an excellent team of midwives and a track record of being among the best maternity units in the country with low perinatal mortality rates and recently recognised as the first English county to achieve UNICEF Baby Friendly status.
 
"The RCHT team work tirelessly to provide consistently safe, high quality care and we have recently invested in additional midwives who will come into post shortly to ensure we keep pace with the rising demand."
