The birth of Oscar Craig

THE DETAILS: Oscar Craig was born at Stirling Royal Infirmary on December 18 at 9.52 p.m. weighing 9lb.

THE PREGNANCY: The pregnancy went smoothly and Dawn had no problems at all.

THE BIRTH: Oscar was a week late when he arrived. He was delivered by forceps but the labour went quite smoothly. The couple were thrilled to have a baby so close to Christmas and said it made the birth even more exciting for the couple and all the family.

THE BABY: Little Oscar is doing well and is eating and sleeping well, and Dawn and David are loving these early weeks with their new baby.

THE NAME: Dawn and David waited until their baby was born before deciding on a name and in the labour ward they agreed on Oscar.
