THE BIRTH: Mum went in on April 21 to be induced, feeling very nervous because of lockdown and having no one with her. But she said it was so relaxed. When she went into labour the next day,she went from 6cms to fully dilated in half an hour and with three pushes he was out.

THE NAME: They cchose Danny as it was one of those names they had heard that stuck with them.

THE BABY: Danny is a cheery wee guy, such a chilled baby and is sleeping all night.
