The birth of April Eve Mortimer

THE PARENTS: Mum Sian (25) is a student and dad Charles (30) is an engineering planner. April is the couple’s first baby and the family live in Falkirk.

THE PREGNANCY: The pregnancy went very smoothly, so smoothly in fact that Sian didn’t even know she was pregnant in the early stages.

THE BIRTH: Timely, baby April arrived one day after her due date. The labour started slowly but soon got going. Mum and baby were well afterwards.

THE BABY: April is a great baby. She has slept all night since she was 10 weeks old, and now enjoys ‘Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star’ and tickles.

THE NAME: The couple liked the name ‘April’. Charles’s birthday is in April and that is also when the couple got engaged.

THE GRANDPARENTS: April is a new granddaughter for Janet and John Mortimer who live in Carron, and Sarah and Gerald Spawton who live in Falkirk.

THANKS: Special thanks to the Poppy Team at FVRH.
