The birth of Zach Charlie Muir

THE DETAILS: Zach Charlie Muir was born at Forth Valley Royal Hospital in Larbert at 4.56 p.m. on April 30 weighing in at a healthy 9lb ½oz half ounce.

THE PARENTS: Mum Veronica works for the Department of Work and Pensions in Falkirk while dad Dale is a prison custody officer. Zach is the couple’s second baby,they have also been blessed with Bethany (2). The family lives in Shieldhill.

THE PREGNANCY: Veronica suffered from sickness through the majority of the pregancy, but did enjoy one three-week sickness-free span before it started up again.

THE BIRTH: Veronica had a natural, trouble free birth. Her waters broke on Tuesday and Zach came along on the Wednesday.

THE BABY: Zach is a happy, very hungry baby who wants to be fed all the time at the moment.

THE NAME: Zach was a name both Veronica and Dale liked. Zach’s middle name Charlie, which is Veronica’s dad’s name, was meant to be the baby’s first name but Veronica’s sister called her dog Charlie and the family felt that two Charlies were enough.

THE GRANDPARENTS: Zach is the third grandchild for Moira and Gordon Muir and the 11th grandchild for Jean and Charlie Syme.

THANKS: Veronica and Dale thank all the staff at Forth Valley Royal Hospital for helping ensure Zach came into the world without a hitch and their parents for their continued love and support.
