I would like to say thank you to Lesley the midwife at Dr Gray’s hospital in Elgin for all her support to myself and my husband during my rather grueling thirteen hour through the night labour in May last year. A big thank you also to Dr MacLean who came straight back in to the hospital not long after getting home from the end of his last shift when it was decided that forceps assistance might be needed when my little lady got her head stuck at an awkward angle.

Alice is nearly nine months old now and the cheeriest, funniest little soul I could ever have hoped for xx
