Midwives helps dad pop the question by changing newborn into baby-grow with proposal

A COUPLE had a baby after trying for six years — then midwives helped daddy propose.

Steve Branson and Jess Mayall, together 18 years, had a series of heartaches before Imogen arrived last week.


Midwives dressed her in a baby-grow with the message: “Mummy, will you marry Daddy?”

Jess immediately said yes at Hull Women and Children’s Hospital.

Jess, from Grimsby, Lincs, said: “It was such an amazing surprise. We’ve had many ups and downs together.

“In 2018 we were lucky enough to conceive with the help of the IVF team in Hull. But sadly, on 5th July 2019, daughter Ava was born sleeping at 38 weeks and three days.

“Imogen is our rainbow baby.”

Steve said: “It feels like a huge weight has been lifted and this felt like the perfect time to ask Jessica to be my wife.”

"We can finally start the next chapter of our lives with Imogen; with Ava in our hearts."

Jade Barker, midwifery assistant at the hospital said: "My colleagues and I were happy to help Steve make the proposal.

"It was so nice to be involved in something so meaningful and positive for this lovely couple after everything they have been through."
