THE DETAILS: Brodie Benjamin Short was born on May 8 at Stirling Royal Infirmary at 3.05 p.m. weighing 8lb 8oz.

THE PARENTS: Mum Liz Short is 33 and works for the Children’s Support Agency in Falkirk, and dad Matt Short is 30 and is an employee of Stirling Council. Brodie is the couple’s first baby and the family live in Falkirk.

THE PREGNANCY: Liz said that the pregnancy was fine, although she said that she did suffer from extreme heartburn and swollen ankles.

THE BIRTH: Brodie was eight days early. Liz started experiencing contractions when she was already in hospital. She was taken to the labour suite at 5 a.m. and little Brodie was born that afternoon. Both mum and baby were fine afterwards.

THE BABY: Little Brodie is a long-awaited baby and very precious to mum and dad. He is doing very well and only wakes once in the night for a feed.

THE NAME: Matt first heard the name ‘Brodie’ in a movie, and Liz liked it too so they decided on it as their boy’s name early on in the pregnancy. ‘Benjamin’ is after Brodie’s uncle.

THE GRANDPARENTS: Brodie is a fourth grandchild for Shirley and Steve Short of Falkirk and a second grandchild for the late Marion Sinclair of Cumbernauld.

THANKS: Special thanks go to the Bluebell team at Stirling Royal Infirmary and to Steve and Shirley for all their help and support.
