Perfect present! Baby Freya with proud parents Paul Dobinson and Natalie McDowell from Blackburn Street, Workington. Inset, some of the staff caring for mums and babies at Christmas on the maternity ward

She arrived at 10.20am on Christmas Day weighing 9lb 8.5oz, the day’s only delivery at the West Cumberland Hospital in Whitehaven.

Proud dad Paul, 28, said: “She was due on December 11 so we never expected her to be born on Christmas Day.

“She’s the perfect Christmas present.

“We’ve been in the hospital since three o’clock on Sunday morning.

“Natalie had some pain and they kind of pushed her on.

“It’s been a long one. We’re just relieved now she’s here.”

The couple live in Blackburn Street, Workington.

Paul is a printing-plate maker and Natalie, 25, a tax adviser. Freya is their first child.

She was the only Christmas Day delivery at the West Cumberland Hospital.

There was also one Christmas Day arrival at the Cumberland Infirmary in Carlisle, a baby girl born at 5pm.
