In response to this Derbyshire Toy Library Network (DTLN) has commissioned Toy Library Gift Vouchers. These can be purchased direct from the Network or through member toy libraries available in multiples of £5.00 or £10.00 The Vouchers can be exchanged for memberships and/or toy loans paid up front which will last for considerably longer than the usual purchase of one toy! The vouchers can also be used by Schools & Voluntary Groups to top up their Inclusive Membership / Toy hire packages Give the network a call 0845 310 2738 or e-mail availability email@example.com or visit http://www.derbyshire.toylibrarynetwork.org/ __________________________________________________________ News and Events --------------- Please send announcements of future children's events to firstname.lastname@example.org Santa Special Steam Train Ride Free Child Tickets, 20th, 21st, 23rd, 24th December.

Computer labour A new computer program has been designed to help minimise human error in the management of women in labour. The program analyses the foetal heart rate and compares this to other information it collects about the labour, such as cervical dilation and the presence of amniotic fluid. The system then provides the midwife with recommendations about care. http://www.theengineer.co.uk/Articles/309082/ Test 'predicts preterm baby risk' Researchers have identified a test which can predict whether a woman is likely to give birth if her waters break early in pregnancy. UK experts said the test would help to plan care and reassure women whose membranes rupture prematurely. http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/health/7777959.stm If you would like to read this news as it happens, without waiting for this newsletter, then grab our newsfeed from http://www.under-fives.org/newsfeed.html It's free and instantly updates you with the latest news and events via e-mail, your web site or any news feed reader. ___________________________________________________________ Copyright studholme.net, 2008 You are welcome to copy or forward any part of this newsletter, but please include this copyright notice and web address - http://www.under-fives.org/ Previous editions of this newsletter are archived at http://www.under-fives.org/news.html
