A mum from Harborough was among the first to give birth at Kettering General Hospital on New Year’s Day.
Baby William Alexander Fordyce was born at 7.25am, weighing 6lb 10oz, after a short labour for mum Carol, pictured above with William, which she said lasted about 20 minutes. He was the second baby born at the hospital on January 1. Carol and husband Niall had gone to hospital the previous night after Carol began suffering pains while celebrating New Year’s Eve at a friend’s house. William has company at home in the shape of seven-year-old brother Joshua.
