Easy like a Sunday morning

The sweetest little card made by big brother to welcome the new baby before they arrived. And in the early hours of this morning we were privileged to support this amazing mama as she calmly welcomed her gorgeous little boy into her arms at home just as she’d planned. Settled straight into her own bed, skin to skin for a little moment before big brother awoke and joined in the morning cuddles…. A little moment for them before big sister awoke to join the crew πŸ’™πŸ’–πŸ’™. The perfect start to a Sunday!

Ready for Nursery

With a very civilised call-out time to this Mama, we knew we had to make our way straight to her, due to a previous quick birth πŸš€πŸ’« … (Yes, we did make it in time πŸ€—) With both grandparents upstairs getting big brothers ready for their day, this Awesome Mama welcomed her Gorgeous little girl into her arms in the #pool in the sitting room and they were all able to come and meet their new little sister just moments after her arrival- and then head to. Nursery to tell everyone the exciting News πŸ’™πŸ’™πŸ’– #HomeBirthJustHappened #SurreyHillsHomeBirthTeam #physiologicalbirth #namedmidwife #caselaoding #support #choice #options #waterbirth

We got you

This Amazing Mama welcomed her Gorgeous little girl into her arms in the #pool at #home πŸ’– Going to have an early afternoon nap with her 3yr old was all it took to change the early about niggles into established labour- which then progressed quickly πŸ’« As the on-call team that day were already supporting another labour- a few phone calls and a sprinkle of fairy dust 🧚 resulted in being very grateful to Midwife Lucy for supporting on her day off, and Midwife Jodie for joining her from the hospital πŸ€— and the two Awesome Mamas met their babies just 4 minutes apart πŸ’™πŸ’– This big brother awoke from his nap at the perfect time and he was able to join with all the early post birth excitement #HomeBirthJustHappened #SurreyHillsHomeBirthTeam #physiolohicalbirth #waterbjrth #caselaoding #teamworkmakesthedreamwork #choice #support
