The mother of one of the first 2023 babies in Scotland was assisted in the birth by her colleagues from the National Health Service.
Megan Barras, 22, works in the Department of Orthopedics at the Royal Glasgow Hospital.
She gave birth to a boy at 00:11 at the nearby Princess Royal Maternity Hospital with her mother and partner Taylor Bowman, 22, by her side.
An enthusiastic Meghan said: “I don’t even know how to properly describe it. I’m exhausted, but in seventh heaven with happiness.
“I wasn’t supposed to be born until January 11th, but I was brought in for induction on the 28th, so it was a surprise that he was born in 2023.”
The baby weighed 8 pounds and the couple is still deciding on a name.
Meghan, from Glasgow’s East End, said: “I work here in Ward 61 so I’m not used to being a patient.
“I get yelled at all the time for trying to do things. I’m not used to people doing things for me.
“We hope to choose a name soon.”
