THE DETAILS: Aaron Scot Clark was born at Forth Valley Royal Hospital at 11.11 a.m. on February 5, 2014, weighing 4lb 9oz.
THE PARENTS: Mum Veronica (28) is a self employed beauty therapist, while dad Scot (34) works for Dingrow Car Parks. Aaron is the couple’s first baby and the family lives in Redding.
THE PREGNANCY: Veronica suffered all-day sickness throughout most of her pregnancy, but jokes about it now, saying that at least she lost weight.
THE BIRTH: Aaron arrived in the world four weeks early and came as a complete surprise to Veronica, who was planning to go to work that day. The whole birth was over in a matter of hours, but there were health worries for Aaron, who spent the first 10 days of his life in Yorkhill Hospital.
THE BABY: After coming home from hospital Aaron has gone from strength to strength and is now a healthy and happy baby.
THE NAME: Aaron was the only name that both parents liked and, of course, he got his middle name from his dad’s forename.
THE GRANDPARENTS: Aaron is the apple of his grandparents’ eyes. He is the fifth grandchild for Gerard and Janet Corbett and is the first grandchild for John and Gwen Clark.
THANKS: Veronica and Scot thank the Poppy team at Forth Valley Royal maternity ward and all the staff at Yorkhill for the excellent level of care they gave Aaron.
