The birth of Nathan David Swan
THE PARENTS: Nathan David is the first child for Krystal (26), the manager of Coral bookmakers in Bainsford, and David (30) who works for Scottish Power in Glasgow. The family live in Stenhousemuir.
THE PREGNANCY: No problems at all - until the final few weeks when high blood pressure meant regular check-ups at the hospital.
THE BIRTH: Mum was admitted one week early on Thursday, April 2, but baby opted not to make his appearance until the early hours of the Saturday.
THE BABY: Very content, very happy – and very hungry! He put on 14ozs in just one week!
THE NAME: Krystal and David were convinced they were having a baby girl and had a list of names ready. However, when their baby boy arrived the name Nathan was the first choice.
THE GRANDPARENTS: Nathan David is the 14th grandchild for Krystal’s mum Christine Clarkson and the first grandson for David’s parents Helen and David Swan.
THANKS: To the maternity team at the hospital and mum-in-law Helen.
