The birth of Catherine and Daniel Fox’s fourth child, Albie, was made even more special by having Anita Walsh on hand to help with the delivery.
Midwife Anita, who is based at the Rosie Hospital, in Cambridge, has delivered all four of the Fox’s sons over the last 11 years and the Great Gransden couple described her as “amazing”.
Catherine said: “Nothing’s too much trouble for her. Like all new parents, for our first baby we didn’t know what to expect, but Anita took us step-by-step all the way through.
“It really was a blessing for her to be there and we are so incredibly lucky and grateful that she’s delivered all of our children.”
Daniel continued: “It’s a wonderful yet terrifying experience. As a dad nothing is in your control, but each time I saw it was Anita who was going to be delivering our baby, I thought ‘thank God’”. She’s a one off, they don’t make many like that.”

Anita said: “The odds of delivering four babies for the same couple are very slim. I can’t describe how special it is to help bring a baby into the world or how much I love my job. The day I get bored is the day I get out. Technically I’ve retired but I’m still working full time because I enjoy it so much.”
Albie was born on Monday, October 5, and the Fox’s other sons are called Remy (3), Fraser (6), and Corey (11).
