My calming influences

This Gorgeous boy was his Mamas companion in labour and beautifully calm observer as she welcomed her Gorgeous little girl into her arms at #home πŸ’–πŸ€—πŸΆ Big sister was there too with a wonderful welcome for her new little best friend and the greatest gift of normalising birth πŸ’« Thank you to this lovely family for supporting our student placement and sharing the wonder of #homebirth, a first for this student. Supporting #physiologicalbirth is key in the training of our future midwives and home is the perfect environment for this πŸ€— And of course it was wonderful to share the birth space with their lovely doula who provided amazing back massages and support throughout πŸ’– #HomeBirthJustHappened #SurreyHomeBirthTeam #support #caseloading #continuity #choice #doula #douladog #studentmidwife

I trust my body

We were privileged to support this Awesome Mama as she welcomed her Gorgeous little girl earthside in the #pool at #home just as she planned πŸ’–πŸ‘ This little one played the β€˜3rd baby game’ with her Mama but once she had decided on her birth date, she was then in quite a hurry! Older siblings were there to meet their new little Friend very shortly after birth, whilst they were still in the birth pool πŸ€— This lovely family’s 2nd pregnancy with the team and our circle of care continues into these early postnatal days πŸ’–πŸ’™πŸ’– #HomeBirthJustHappened #SurreyHillsHomeBirthTeam #physiologicalbirth #namedmidwife #labourgames #caseloading #continuity #choice #care

The perfect surprise πŸ’–

It was a wonderful start to the day supporting the Awesome Mama as she welcomed her surprise Gorgeous little girl into her arms at #home πŸ‘πŸ’– Her Mama stayed for a sleepover last night, took big brother to Nursery in the morning and made it back just in time to witness the birth of her little granddaughter πŸ’– It was a super busy Summers day for the Team. With a wonderful, busy coffee morning where it was great to meet those interested in homebirth, and, as always we absolutely love to see those who have been in our caseload previously, get to see all the babies again and generally have a catch up m. What is then so fab, is to take a tiny step back and enjoy seeing all the connections happen amongst the families πŸ₯°πŸ₯° 2 homebirths and 1 labour support , a coffee morning and then Team training in the afternoon #busy #HomeBirthJustHappened #SurreyHillsHomeBirthTeam #namedmidwife #caseloading #continuity #support #options #choice #physiologicalbirth
