THESE babies gave their parents the perfect gift when they were born on Christmas Day.

In total, six babies were born at Hereford County Hospital on Tuesday – three boys and three girls.

The first arrived at 4.19am, while the last entered the world at 4.24pm.

Each baby received a teddy bear from the hospital’s trust volunteers to celebrate their Christmas birthday.

Helen Prince, suite manager at Wye Valley NHS Trust said she was delighted to announce the births.

She added:“Each birth is special, but Christmas babies have a very special birthday indeed.

“Our midwifery and health visiting team works closely together to provide women with a positive pregnancy and birth experience.”
