A beauty salon has been hit by a baby boom after seven women working there gave birth within nine months.

Me Time Hair & Beauty in Laurieston, Falkirk, employs 15 workers, with around half becoming pregnant since the start of the year – and have welcomed six baby girls and one boy between January 15 and September 1.

Salon owner Marie-Claire McFarlane, 33, was the only mum to give birth to a boy, Joel, and is already mum to daughter Madison, aged three.

Receptionist Sammy Sneddon, 28, is also a mum-of-two, but for the five other women it was their first experience of pregnancy and they supported each other through it.

Nail technician Lisa Henderson, 29, was the first to give birth, with daughter Mila McDowall born on January 15.

Skin Kerr salon in Bootle had put posters up outside that read “you can’t catch what doesn’t exist” and told visitors staff would not be wearing masks, according to pictures shared on social media.
