“It was lovely to see a friendly face when I came back onto the maternity ward.”
Angela and Julie have been friends for 13 years after meeting while they were both studying nursing at Bell College in Hamilton.
The pair have worked together in Wishaw for the past decade.
Angela added: “We met each other on the first day of college and have been friends ever since.
“We have been working together in the same ward for the past 10 years.
“We are really close and I’m sure the two girls will be the best of friends as well.”
