SANTA SAYS: MAKE A SUNNYBROOK BABY THIS HOLIDAY!

With just nine months until completion of the new home for the Women & Babies Program, you’re invited to meet Santa and receive a special tour of the construction site

Attention: Assignment Editor, Health/Medical Editor, Media Editor, News Editor, Photo Editor TORONTO, ONTARIO, MEDIA ADVISORY--(Marketwire - Dec. 18, 2009) - Sunnybrook and Santa have a special holiday message for couples thinking about trying for a baby: if you conceive during the week of December 21, 2009, you'll not only deliver in new state-of-the-art facilities but also have a chance to win a fabulous gift.

The week of December 21, 2009 coincides with a woman's fertile period if she is to deliver a baby on September 12, 2010. This is the day that Sunnybrook's Women & Babies Program moves from its downtown location at 76 Grenville Street to the Bayview campus at 2075 Bayview Avenue. The first couple delivering a baby in Sunnybrook's new facility on September 12, 2010 will receive a year's supply of diapers, cleaning service for a year and a spa package donated courtesy of the Sunnybrook Foundation.

You're invited to attend a special media event to learn more about what makes the new obstetrical facilities so exceptional and to mark "Make a Sunnybrook Baby Week":

Time: 10 a.m.

"The new home for the Women & Babies Program includes birthing rooms where women can progress through labour, delivery and recovery in the same suite.
