Aila Hazel Beattie was born by C-Section on Saturday 10th July 2010 at Ninewells Hospital. Me and my husband Craig were surprised – but delighted – that what we’d both been convinced was a blue bump turned out to be a girl! We loved spending time with our gorgeous little girl and Craig got stuck into changing nappies and lots of cuddling.
On the Monday myself and Aila transferred to Arbroath Infirmary and lots of visitors came to get a look at our beautiful daughter.
That night Aila was very unsettled and wouldn’t sleep unless she was in bed with me. The next day she developed a rash and would get incredibly frustrated when I tried to breastfeed, raging to the point she was red all over except her blue hands and purple feet.
