A joyful labour victory…

Albert Lachlan Harry Fraser

• WHILE many homes in Camden and Islington were hoping for a Labour win last week, myself and my girlfriend Bel had a labour victory of our own. Albert Lachlan Harry Fraser was born at 00:19 on Friday the 13th weighing 7lbs 8oz.

There was a race to try and get him out before midnight so his birthday could be 12/12. But, as we’ve learnt in the past few days, Albie will not be forced to do anything he doesn’t want to do.

We would like to say a huge thank you to the staff at UCLH. We will never forget Sophie, the midwife who helped us through 80 per cent of the labour, and Colleen, who delivered Albie.

All the doctors, nurses and midwives in postnatal did an amazing job grounding two exhausted and confused new parents. Long live the NHS.
