Our beautiful daughter Emily made quite a speedy, dramatic arrival into the world on 5 October 2023, weighing a healthy 7lbs 4oz.

We are incredibly grateful to the Sapphire midwives and all the staff at Worcester Royal Hospital for looking after us so well. Emily is now nearly 4 months and is thriving, developing a very sassy little personality already! We are completely in love.

Her dad Steve and I must now get on with some wedding planning after also getting engaged in 2023 - it was a very busy year!
