Regan’s FAQs

When are you going to put a picture of him online?
We’ve read studies which suggest that flash-assisted photographs taken before seven months of age may harm an infant’s developing eyes. We will post a photo of Regan after seven months. Sooner if we can get a photograph taken outside.
What do you mean there was no outside help?
There was no doctor, midwife, or other labour support present during her labour and delivery. The only people in attendance were Mary, Kim, and Sinéad.
