The birth of Cameron Greig Seaton
THE PARENTS: Mum Lisa Seaton (30) from Falkirk is a primary school teacher at Comely Park while dad Andrew Seaton (31), also from Falkirk, is a maintenance technician. Cameron is their first baby and the couple live in Lionthorn.
THE PREGNANCY: Lisa said that she felt fine throughout.
THE BIRTH: Baby Seaton was one week overdue when Lisa went into labour at about 6 o’clock in the evening. By 8 p.m. she was in hospital and had a water birth. She said that, although she hadn’t intended to give birth in the water, the pool was such a great source of pain relief that she found it difficult to get out. Lisa said that dad Andrew was very supportive and was always on hand to give her the gas and air.
THE BABY: Cameron is doing very well. He is sleeping at least five hours in the night and has just mastered how to giggle. He is also starting to recognise people he loves and always has lots of smiles for mum and dad.
THE NAME: Both Lisa and Andrew wanted a nice Scottish name and agreed on Cameron. Greig was their second choice for a boy’s name so they decided to use it as Cameron’s middle name.
THE GRANDPARENTS: Little Cameron is a first grandchild for Alison and Duncan Drummond from Falkirk, and also a first for Dorothy and Jim Seaton of Falkirk.
