SAY hello these adorable babies bringing joy to proud new parents and excited siblings during the coronavirus pandemic and beyond.

We would like to introduce you to 24 rainbow babies, who were born in Bournemouth and Poole, Christchurch and the New Forest in very unprecedented circumstances.

Thank you to all parents who have sent us photographs so far. We have been inundated with images of beautiful new bundles of joy and are featuring them each and every week on a Thursday.

If you would like a photograph of your baby to appear in print and on our website, then please get in touch. You can send pictures of your brand new bundle of joy by filling out our super-easy form here 

During lockdown, hundreds of parents across our patch have been welcoming their babies into the world at St Mary’s Maternity Unit in Poole, the New Forest Birth Centre and at home.

And now, proud parents are beginning to introduce their bundles of joy to their wider families and friends.

And we are sharing a little slice of your joy and sharing them with our readers too.

We will be featuring your newborn babies every Thursday in the Bournemouth Echo and in our online gallery at
