Baby's First Selfie

New moms on the Postpartum Units at Abington Hospital can now take ‘baby’s first selfie’ in front of a beautiful wall mural. Moms can upload their photos to social media platforms, such as Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, accompanied by various hashtags. We’re encouraging new moms to post their photo along with the hashtags #bornatabington and #abingtonbaby, to name a few.

Murals are located in all three postpartum units – 4 Lenfest East, 4 Lenfest West and 2 Buerger. The goal is to provide an opportunity for our new families to share their joy on social media platforms.
