It was a busy festive period for midwives in the Southern Trust, with five babies born at Craigavon Area Hospital on Christmas Day and six on Boxing Day.
Among the new arrivals was baby Molly Corvan who made her entrance at 00.46am on Christmas Day, weighing in at 8lb 2oz.
Mum Amy, from Derrynoose, is a senior cardiac physiologist in the cardiac investigations department at Craigavon Hospital, so she was in familiar surroundings.
Amy and husband Fintan described their daughter as “the perfect Christmas gift”, with Amy paying tribute to the “absolutely fantastic midwives that got Molly safely into the world”.
Meanwhile, among the new arrivals at Daisy Hill Hospital was baby Saorlaith who arrived on Christmas Day at 10.14am, weighing 6lb 11oz.
