do the hospitals still do this?
also do hospital give you handprint and footprints or is that something you do yourselves?

Yes they do but tbh the quality is hit and miss really, I really don't think the reps should be allowed to go round the wards tbh
No they don't and afaik never done hand and foot prints, there's companies who do it though

thanks CP, im sure with the aulity of our cameras and phones etc now we can take pretty good pictures ourselves. but its nice to know they are still there as an option
ill look into the handprints, we have a home casting kit but id like an ink print.
hubby is considering a handprint tattoo and id like to take the print of it incase he wants it done at a later date !

They did at ours but the quality was rubbish. We did much better at home a few days later with a decent camera and photoshop!

i didnt even know they took photos but i'm deff getting one done now, thankfully our hospital has one - Thanks for letting us know Mon - does your hospital do them?

We had some bounty ones done and they were really good. Seems to vary greatly based on who you have though! This time weve booked a proper newborn shoot for when hes born.

yeh iv just checked and basildon do them, ! do you get a proof first so yuo can choose whether you want it or not ?
what do they do for people who go home the same day do they still get this service?

You see them on a screen and the choose them if you want them. They then get sent to you at home. Ours eere done the morning after she was born, id imagine its luck as to if youre on the wardnwhen the rep comes round

thats fab to know thank you AR !
J had his taken when we'd been on the ward about an hour. We went home a few hours later, so guess we were "lucky" we were there when the rep came.
Not sure how often they visit wards.
I'm glad we had them done. With C being in SCBU, I missed out with him. J has some scratches on his head, and the rep said she could photoshop them out. We were happy with our pics. Didn't take them long to come either.
We bought J a special blanket, and his pic was taken on that, so much nicer than the hospital ones I have seen in some of my friends baby pics, so maybe pack a nice blanket?

We did but in hindsight no idea why as H is a photographer anyway. Our pics are ok though and was handy for prints for family/friends on the quick!
