BABIES born during lockdown have provided a welcome ray of sunshine for their families in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic.

But parents will have to wait a bit longer to show off their little ones to the world with restrictions remaining in place for the time being.

We know grandparents, siblings, aunts and uncles cannot wait to see them either, so in the meantime, scroll down to see view pictures and celebrate the safe arrival of these babies born during lockdown.

If you live in Northwich, Winsford, Middlewich, Knutsford and Wilmslow, and your little bundle of joy arrived during lockdown, share your pics here.

Georgie Isabella was born on 7th April at 35 weeks gestation, she stayed on the NICU ward at the Countess of Chester Hospital for 17 days. The staff were amazing and supportive, even though it was difficult due to restrictions for COVID-19 such as only one parent visiting alone and no siblings. So she finally got to meet her sister Millie when she came home. Would love her to be in your edition with special thanks to the hospital xx

Laurel Joy Gover was born on Good Friday at 11.09pm, weighing 7lbs 11oz. In some ways the experience during lockdown felt very different from 3 years earlier when I had my little boy - the hospital felt rather empty and all the midwives were wearing masks. But in all the important ways, it was very much the same - the excellent quality of care, the super supportive staff who were always going the extra mile, and the lovely facilities at the MLU. Since being home, we've missed introducing Laurel to friends and family, but are enjoying the opportunity to hunker down during quarantine and bond as a family of 4.

This is Bobby Sean Gavin Caldwell. He was born on the 13th April 2020. He has been in hospital since he was born due to him being 4 weeks premature and having other complications. I, Rachel Nabal, is his mother and Kyle Caldwell his is father. Kyle has only seen Bobby twice since he was born due to the lockdown. The hospital only allows one parent to see him a day, because I am breast feeding that one person is me. Hopefully he will be home soon! Warrington Hospital has been absolutely amazing for our little bean! I couldn’t thank them enough for all their hard work during this lockdown!
