The maternity unit was kept extremely busy while Vale mothers went into labour on the same day as the Duchess of Cambridge.

Fifteen babies were born yesterday in the labour ward while four were delivered in the birth centre which offers a more home birth-like experience.

Amongst the new mums giving birth was Wendover mum Rachel Gatley, whose baby girl is pictured above.

Parents of all babies born yesterday can claim a special coin to celebrate the Royal birth.
