It’s a real baby shower for the nurs­ery staff

It’s time to meet up

Rutherglen Reformer - - News - Dou­glas Dickie

Six pals from a Cam­bus­lang nurs­ery who gave birth just weeks apart let their ba­bies meet for the first time.

In March the Re­former re­ported that seven staff mem­bers at the Up­stairs Kidz Club had all fallen preg­nant within months of one another.

The cy­cle was fi­nally com­pleted on April 13 when Michelle Seery, 28, gave birth to baby Sean and Laura McGladri­gan, 28, saw the ar­rival of twins Aria and Andi.

And this month they were joined back at their work by Pamela Lamb, 25, and So­phie, Michelle Gem­mell, 30, and Paige, Kim­berly O’Don­nell, 25, and Orla and Heather McKee Adair, 27, and Law­son.

The first of that group, So­phie, ar­rived on Jan­uary 12, mean­ing there was just 86 days be­tween the births.

Another work­mate, Stacey Cal­laghan, 26, who gave birth to Hunter in Septem­ber last year, did not make the catch-up,

Michelle Gem­mell, whose daugh­ter Paige was born in Jan­uary, said: “Be­cause we are all from dif­fer­ent ar­eas we hadn’t all been to­gether since the last ba­bies were born.

“It was nice to get to meet them and com­pare weights and things like that.”

Michelle now hopes the ba­bies go on to be friends as the grow up.

“I don’t know what will hap­pen but we are all re­ally close.

A lot of us have been work­ing for years to­gether and it was re­ally nice to have the chance of a wee day out.

“Hope­fully they grow up to be friends.

“They might even all go to this nurs­ery to­gether which would be fan­tas­tic.”

The births did come to a shock to the nurs­ery, but Michelle said: “They’ve got ma­ter­nity cover in now and all the girls have set­tled well.

“It seems to be run­ning quite well.”

New friends The girls were de­lighted to in­tro­duce the ba­bies to each other
