It’s almost as if when Jersey Leeming was born at the Royal Preston Hospital in Preston, Lancashire two years ago, she knew she would not be growing up in normal times.
The newborn was delivered via C-section with an exaggerated scowl on her face that mirrors exactly how many of us have been feeling during this coronavirus pandemic.
“With Jersey I was dead set on wanting everything perfect and relaxed so decided on a gentle c-section,” her mom, Stacey told the Sun.
“They put Lana Del Rey’s Video Games on in the background and it was just really, really peaceful, everything went really smoothly.
“Because everything had gone wrong the first three times I was just expecting the worst but it was perfect from the beginning, it turned out to be the best experience of my life.
“They helped Jersey’s head out and then left her sat there like that, they held her head and she wriggled herself out and pulled her feet out.
“It was amazing seeing her being born but it was also overwhelming to watch. Everyone was happy, except the baby.”
Two years later, and her mom says that Jersey smiles, and frowns, she’s also quite the spirited one among her other three siblings.
“She’s gives her brother and sisters a run for their money for sure,” Stacey said. “She’s still a good sleeper but she’ll be the one running around late at night, I don’t know where she gets her energy from.”
