‘Beautiful baby Jack was born last night at 21.17 at home. Contractions started around 2.30 and really kicked in and became more regular about an hour after Matt got home from work, 6.30 maybe?
We started to fill the birth pool as my waters broke and Jack’s little head popped out shortly after with only a few inches of water in the pool and the midwives just walking through the door. He was one contraction away from delivering his son himself!!!
The golden thread breath and lots of pacing and hip swaying worked wonders! Only had two paracetamol and although in pain, these things made it bearable.
Thank you so much for everything! I seriously believe that our experience would not have been so positive without knowing everything that we learned from you.”
