The birth of Jamie Gary McLean
THE DETAILS: Jamie Gary McLean was born at Forth Valley Royal Hospital, Larbert, on July 29 at 6.31am weighing 7lb 10oz.
THE PARENTS: Mum Eve McLean (31) is originally from Essex and is now a hairdresser in Polmont, while dad Gary McLean (36) is a Falkirk postman. The couple live in Polmont with Jamie and elder son David (3).
THE PREGNANCY: Eve describes the nine months as “not too bad” and a lot better than first time when she admits she felt quite sorry for herself.
THE BIRTH: After being in early labour for five days, Eve was eventually induced and Jamie arrived within the hour.
THE BABY: “A super, smiley wee boy” was how mum describes him. Despite being quite unwell with an infection which resulted in a hospital stay and still involving lots of check ups, he is always a happy and content baby.
THE NAME: On mum’s side there are several with the name James and this is the couple’s own twist, while Gary is after dad.
THE GRANDPARENTS: Jamie is a new grandson for Margaret and Colin McLean of Polmont and Yvonne and Tony Dawkins of Essex.
THANKS: Eve would like to thank husband Gary for all his support throughout her pregnancy and at the birth, as well as giving her two beautiful children.
