The birth of Max Alexander Beveridge
THE DETAILS: Max Alexander Beveridge was born on May 4 at 6.52 p.m. at Stirling Royal Infirmary weighing 9lb 6.5 oz.
THE PARENTS: Mum Ailsa Ure is 28 and works as a court clerk, while dad Paul Beveridge is 29 and a petrol station manager. The family live in Bonnybridge and Max is their first baby.
THE PREGNANCY: Ailsa had a tough time for the first 18 weeks with constant morning sickness, but was fine afterwards.
THE BIRTH: Max was 12 days late so Ailsa was taken to hospital to be induced. She progressed through her labour well, but, at the end, because Max kept changing position, he was delivered by Caesarean section.
THE BABY: Little Max is sleeping well through the night, although he is quite alert during the day. He enjoys his food and has big smiles for everyone. He’s also happy when kicking around on his playmat.
THE NAME: Mum and dad liked the name Max from the very beginning, while Alexander is after Max’s papa and great papa as well as his two uncles who have the name Sandy.
THE GRANDPARENTS: Max is a third grandchild for Helen and Sandy Ure of Falkirk, and a first for Jimmy and Diane Beveridge from Bonnybridge.
THANKS: Special thanks go to the Tulip Team at Stirling Royal Infirmary, and to all the couple’s friends and family who gave so much help and support after Max was born.
