Mum said her pregnancy was undetected for some time due to suffering from Covid and they didn’t know until she was 16 weeks pregnant. She said from then it was not plain sailing and was the worst pregnancy out of all three.

Lena was born by planned caesarian section.

With both boys having Scottish names, mum and dad wanted to do the same with Lena, but they struggled a little. They then found Lena which is a Scottish and German name and was perfect as mum is half German. Lena’s full name means light, strength and grace.

Mum and dad say Lena is amazing and her character is already building. She loves to smile and has a hearty laugh. She loves to babble away and she knows she’s cute and has everyone who meets her smitten. They say she has amazing strength and has already bypassed expectations. Her name meaning truly is a reflection of her.

Lena’s proud grandparents are Nanny Heike, Nana Donna, grandy Andy and nona Shonagh and papa Gary. She also has great grandparents papa Shug and is desperate to get to Germany to meet opa and oma.

Mum and dad would like to thank all their family and friends for being their for them through the tough parts and they are truly grateful to have such special people in their lives.
