From my personal recollection births at Irvine Central Hospital where
usually births where there might be complications. In that part of North
Ayrshire at that time the usual scenario was for the first birth in a family
to be at nearby "Buckredden" maternity home in Kilwinning - later births
if there were no complications were likely to be at home.
