"Odette is only five days old but already she has brought us so much joy, love and smiles. We couldn't be happier," Mrs Lauga said.

Brittany and Wayne would like to thank the Mater hospital's staff, midwives and obstetrician Dr Akash Roopnarinesingh.

"Wayne and I are most grateful to everyone who has offered their support and congratulations," she said.

Mrs Lauga said becoming a mother has broadened her appreciation of other families and the challenges they face.

"This is a wonderful new world for us. We are so excited to have our little girl home and to start our new journey as a family."
