The birth of:
THE PARENTS: Lynsey Hunter (35) is a railway engineer with Atkins and from Falkirk, John Rennie (49) is a project manager with Iberdrola and from Johnstone. The family live in Falkirk and also have children Niamh (12), Freya (8), Aoife (7) and Finlay (5).
THE PREGNANCY: Lynsey had a great pregnancy with no complaints.
THE LABOUR: Labour was fast, with Lynsey spending only 56 minutes in the labour ward. Lynsey said: “My experience at the hospital was fantastic, the team do a great job and provided excellent care.”
THE BABY: Tess is a great baby who sleeps and feeds well. She is just back from her first ever holiday in Turkey where she impressed the locals with her big smiles. All the children dote on her, with Niamh in particular proving to be an excellent helper.
THE NAME: Lynsey wanted a name that couldn’t be mis-spelled after a life time of people spelling her name incorrectly. Lynsey let John choose the name and Elizabeth is after John’s aunt who is a special lady and is also after the nickname he calls Lynsey.
THANKS: The couple wish to thank the Poppy team at Forth Valley and to all the family for their help and support since Tess arrived.
