She is not even three days old yet, but already Mia MacKay has created history.
Cambridge Community Board member Alana MacKay and husband Phil welcomed their first child, a daughter Mia Christina McCathie MacKay, born on Monday at 1.47am weighing 3900g (8lb 6oz).
MacKay, 37 yesterday, is understood to be the first elected member to give birth while in office.
She fulfilled several community board duties last week, including a three hour board meeting held at the same time as the Cambridge Chamber of Commerce annual meeting. Phil, who was at that meeting, said he was not worried about his wife going into labour – because board chair Jo Davies-Colley was a midwife.
