MOTHER'S Day gifts don't get much better than that of Coutts Crossing's Bec Hay.

At 3.37am on Sunday, she welcomed her first daughter into the world.

Danielle Jean Hay arrived a week or so early at Grafton Hospital after Bec went into labour the night before.

Bec had planned to just have a barbecue with the family but the early arrival changed those plans.

Meeting her daughter for the first time was one of the best moments for the first-time mother.

"I couldn't ask for a better first Mother's Day," she said.

"Though I could have done with a little less pain."
