Barratt Homes Cambridgeshire has welcomed its youngest resident at Hampton Water, as new born baby George was born at home in his parents’ bathroom on the 13th September.
Katie (31) and Chris Hards (39), residents at the Peterborough development, are pleased to announce that both the mother and baby are doing well after labour came a little earlier than expected.
The couple, along with their daughter Amelia (two), moved into their first home together at the Aqua Drive development in June, as they were attracted to the beauty of the area.
Katie, a Software Developer, said: “The community at the development is really close-knit. I have made friends with other pregnant women or those who have recently given birth.
“We moved here because of how pretty the area is. There are lots of footpaths and a lovely lake at the development. Being pregnant since we moved in, I haven’t been able to explore the area all that much, so I am now excited to do this!
“We had some friends over in the evening, which left before midnight. During the night, I began to feel a bit uncomfortable, but it was still a couple of days before my due date. We rang the hospital, who told us to come in. But within 10 minutes, I realised that wasn’t going to be an option!
“The paramedics came so quickly, and I have to praise Chris who was multi-tasking looking after Amelia, calling the paramedics and tending to me. George was born in our family bathroom on the 13th September, and we are both really well.
“My husband put a post on the developments community Facebook page the following day to explain the reason for the ambulance. We had over 120 comments congratulating us, which was really lovely.”
Katie and Chris, who owns a company in Car Valeting and Detailing, are delighted to be starting a new chapter of their life in their new three bedroom Hampton style home.
Will Phair, Head of Sales at Barratt Homes Cambridgeshire, said: “We are thrilled to hear that we have a new resident at the development, and even happier to hear that both the mother and baby are well.
“It was wonderful to hear the story of the exciting birth! All of us at Barratt Homes Cambridgeshire wish all the best to the family.”
