Aneira Thomas, who turns 65 today, was the youngest of seven children but the first of them to be born in a hospital.
Ms Thomas, who was named after the health service's founder, Aneurin "Nye" Bevan, was born at a minute past midnight on July 5, 1948, at the Amman Valley Hospital, Carmarthenshire.
Her mother was in labour for nearly 18 hours, but the nurses pleaded with her to hold on so the baby could be born on the National Health. Today she told ITV's Daybreak the good stories about the NHS don't make the headlines.
As the NHS enters its 66th year, we've been looking at the pressures the service is under and hearing from those who rely on it.
The National Health Service will be 65 years old in July - and we'd like to hear your experiences of it, good or bad.
