Corrie's Katy Cavanagh gives birth to third child

The Sun reported a few weeks ago that Katy Cavanagh, who plays Julie Carp in Coronation Street, has given birth to her third child, a son called Jacobi.

The paper reports that Katy used Independent Midwives UK, a company that operates separately from the NHS, to help deliver the baby at home. And Katy has vowed to fight laws that could make independent midwives illegal after being impressed by the service.

New government legislation will outlaw such services if they do not have suitable insurance, which is often difficult to get.

"It's vital women have a choice of who cares for them during pregnancy and birth," Cavanagh said.

"I have nothing but praise for the NHS but they were unable to provide me with a known midwife or guarantee the birth of my choice."

Let's hope it's not too long before we see Julie back on the Street. Brian's a bit lost without her.
