It was a magical day to remember for proud mums on Christmas Day after they gave birth on the year’s most special day.
Melanie Mitchell, of Elland , was first to deliver after her 8lb 12oz (3.97kg) baby Isobel who was born at Calderdale Royal Hospital in Halifax at 12.24am.
Next to enjoy a successful birth were Almondbury couple Heyshaw Taher and Aram Osman whose baby girl entered the world at 1.58am.
Huddersfield Royal Infirmary midwife Janine Lortie said the 6lb 4oz (2.85kg) girl had yet to be given a name.
There was a wait of several hours before baby Alice was born to Huddersfield couple Karolina Urbaniak and Michal Zabkiewicz at Calderdale Royal Hospital at 7.41am. She weighed in at 8lb 5oz (3.7kg).
And Abigail Cooper, of Dalton , was delighted but exhausted after giving birth at the Calderdale Birth Centre half an hour later at 8.15am.
Staff said the baby boy was yet to be named.
A spokeswoman said: “Mother and baby are doing well.”
Proud dad Gillan Warrington said: “His weight was 7lb. To have a baby born on Christmas Day feels totally surreal but I am sure we will feel the full effect in years to come, for example Santa and birthday lists at once.
“We have already discussed the idea of having a summer birthday for the little one so he doesn’t miss out!”
