Hi, don't panic, there are two types of birthmark. Strawberry birthmarks are raised reddened areas whilst raspberry birthmarks are more 'bruise like' in appearance on the skin. Both can lighten/darken with circulation/temperature of the body. They can appear anywhere upon the body but owing to be associated with assisted deliveries they usually appear upon the legs or face/head. Hope this helps

Many thanks for your replies! Its always good to get other people opinions who are/have been in same situation rather than just resting on 1 persons observations.
Probably will get it double checked when next at doctors, but has put me at ease a bit haha.
