The birth of Archie David Haney
THE PARENTS: Archie David is the first child for Pauline and George Haney from Ingleston Avenue, Dunipace. Pauline (27) is a nursery nurse and George (28) a plasterer and roughcaster.
THE PREGNANCY: Pauline enjoyed a fairly straightforward time, although an issue with her blood count in the latter stages of the pregnancy meant she was told that just to be on the safe side her baby would be induced a week early.
THE BIRTH: No problems at all, Archie David arrived after a labour that lasted less than nine hours.
THE NAME: Archie is named after Pauline’s grandad who sadly died last December, and David after her dad.
THE BABY: Happy and content, and although a bout of colic did knock the wee man out of his stride a few weeks ago, things are back to normal and he eats and sleeps well and has smiles for everybody.
THE GRANDPARENTS: Archie David is a first grandson for Pauline’s dad David and his wife Madelene, and for Pauline’s mum Sharon and her partner Paul, but the fourth granchild for George’s parents George and Lainey.
THANKS: To the Tulip team at FVRH and both sides of the family.
