Welcome To The World Baby Daniel!
On Saturday 11th June, Claire gave birth to a baby boy – Daniel Vincent David Cullen Ruddick at 14:44. He weighed 7lb’s 1.5oz (3.24kg) and was delivered by his dad James Ruddick (under the close watch of 2 midwives!).
Claire and James feel very lucky to have been able to have a home birth, and delighted that everything went according to plan. Both mother and baby did brilliantly and no intervention was required.
Since Daniel’s birth the family have enjoyed some quality time together as James takes his paternity leave (due back to work 3rd July), and Claire her maternity leave (hoping to come back around October ’16).
“We’ve been overwhelmed by all the cards and gifts our friends and patients have given us! Baby Daniel is a very lucky boy! Thank you to all the therapists who have helped in the lead up to Daniel’s birth – Maureen Houston for her nutritional therapy advice, Jenny Gould for hypnobirthing, and Joanna Ruddick for her obstetric osteopathy advice and cranial work on little Daniel (helped him with his hiccups!).” – James Ruddick
