THE DETAILS: Thomas John Easton was born on Wednesday, April 29, in Forth Valley Royal Hospital weighing 6lb 13oz.
THE PARENTS: Vicky (31) and Fraser Easton (32) live in Polmont. Vicky is a customer service manager at Thomas Cook on Falkirk’s High Street and Fraser works for Police Scotland.
THE PREGNANCY: Vicky said the pregnancy was straight-forward, however, it was not as easy as her first. During her pregnancy she developed diabetes.
THE LABOUR: Thomas was born nine days early. Vicky was being scanned every day and doctors noticed fluid for the baby was reduced. Vicky needed a c-section and was taken into surgery early. At 2.57pm a healthy Thomas was born.
THE BABY: Thomas has been a very contented child who loves to play during the day. Thankfully for mum, he has fallen into a good sleeping pattern at night.
THE NAME: The couple easily agreed that the name Thomas would go well with their first-born’s name Matthew, who is now two-and-a-half. Thomas’ middle name is a family one. Vicky’s father had the middle name John, after his father. Husband Fraser has the same middle name as well.
THANKS: Thanks to all the family for their support and the maternity staff at Forth Valley Royal Hospital.
