WEST MID Hospital celebrated its natural birth centre's first birthday by throwing a party with special guest TV star Amanda Holden.

Some of the first mums who gave birth at the centre a year ago joined the Britain's Got Talent judge with their babies on Wednesday

Amanda, from Richmond, said: "Meeting everyone was brilliant, as are the team here."

Pippa Nightingale, a consultant midwife who runs the centre, which has delivered 780 births in its first year, said: "It was fantastic having Amanda here to help us celebrate the first birthday of the centre.

"We are looking forward to next year, when we can continue to offer a first class service to members of the local community."
