Ballarat Base Hospital Trained Nurses League, Ballarat
Windcheater which the midwives in old E1 had made and were sold to staff to fund raise. Some proceeds were to assist midwives attend state conferences.
Other fundraising activities were also undertaken at that time to modify the stark hospital environment of E1 to a more homely environment.
Graphic artist and seamstress, Geraldine Roberts of Wendouree, made the windcheaters as well as screen printed the logo which the staff designed.
Geraldine also did the graphics for an educational booklet the staff produced for expectant parents.
These activities were initiated by the enthusiastic staff of E1 during the early to mid 1980s.
