Television viewers can soon catch a glimpse of the birth of a Campbeltown baby on the small screen.
The new series of Channel 5’s The Highland Midwife starts next Wednesday, September 25, at 8pm, and episode four, on October 16, is expected to feature Milo Fee, who was born in Campbeltown Hospital on January 16 at 5.31am, weighing 7lbs 9oz.
Mum and dad Susanna and Daniel have seen the footage of Milo’s birth and are ‘really happy’ with it and cannot wait for it to be seen by family and friends.
The family, including Milo’s big brothers Saul and Angus, have moved to Brightons, near Falkirk. All three Fee boys have had their Campbeltown Hospital births filmed – Angus’s also for The Highland Midwife, and Saul’s for BBC Alba’s Highland Midwives.
Susanna, who admits she wants a large family and is looking forward to being pregnant again when the time comes, said: ‘It is always nice for locals to see Campbeltown on the television, especially when it is about the area’s great midwifery team.
‘We will definitely miss the love and care I received from my amazing midwife Helen Fairbairn throughout all three of my pregnancies and births, which I hope is portrayed in the programme, and Isabel Cook who was at every birth too. Campbeltown is very lucky to have such a great team of midwives.’
Susanna said that the family is loving life in Falkirk. She said: ‘We’re really enjoying the Brightons vibes and absolutely love the community here. And as much as I miss the beautiful Kintyre beaches, it’s so nice to have so many options on our doorstep.
‘Although we left Daniel’s parents behind in Campbeltown, it is really lovely being so near my sisters and parents who are all within 40 minutes’ drive from us.’
Susanna’s parents, Rod and Niccy Angus, opened the Scottish Owl Centre in Campbeltown in 2005, and moved the attraction to Polkemmet Country Park, Whitburn, in 2011.
