A baby boy was welcomed into the world on New Year’s Day after a “traumatic and emotional” birth, his parents have said.

Jack Oliver Ripley was born at the Royal Berkshire Hospital weighing 7lbs 13 oz.

And, he was delivered by emergency caesarean section within 50 minutes of his mother arriving at the hospital.

Cookham couple Sarah and Joseph Ripley said: “It was a very traumatic and emotional New Year’s Day but once he was born it was all worthwhile.

“Jack has fitted in to the family as if he's always been here and is a little angel.”
