editorial image

Piper Marina Stretton was born on February 26, 2018 at the Victoria Hospital, Kirkcaldy, weighing 9lbs 1.5oz.

The parents...

Jennifer and Simon Stretton.

The pregnancy...

Due to Piper’s size, Jennifer said near the end it was difficult to walk some days. In the first 12 weeks there was never a day she didn’t feel sick.

The baby...

Piper is so content and her mum and dad barely notice she is there. Considering her birth measurements, Jennifer says she is so dainty.

The name...

The couple always liked the name since choosing names for their second child, but he was a boy. Her middle name is Jennifer’s mum and granny’s names mixed together (Margaret and Thomasina).

The proud grandparents...

William and Margaret MacLachlan and Wendy and Barry Stretton.

Anyone you’d like to thank...

Jennifer thanks her parents and the MacLachlans who watched the other two children while she was in hospital.
