At 5:46am on Friday 17th April 2015, Sam and I said hello to Thea Susanna Stocks, who weighed 6lb 6oz.

She arrived in one of the birthing pool suites at St. Michael’s Hospital in Bristol after a very long labour. The midwives were incredible; her mother even more so.

I’m a Dad! And a very happy one at that.
