It was a busy day for the team on Saturday with three caseload babies arriving earthside. This little lady was the first to arrive in the early hours, her mother’s first #Homebirth, ready to join her big sister on lots of adventures! #HomebirthJustHappened #continuity #homewaterbirth #poolbirth #continuity
The team were privileged to support this experienced mum as she birthed her second baby earthside at #home in the #pool. Her second #homebirth with the team #continuity #homebirthJustHappened
It was a busy morning for the team as we welcomed two babies in t the world within an hour!
This experienced mum was supported at home by her named midwife as she birthed her second child.
This gorgeous little girl swam in to the world and straight in to the arms of her amazing mother.
Is there anything cuter than baby feet?
This little lady certainly kept the team on their toes and add a little excitement to their New Year’s Eve when she decided to arrive feet and bottom first! Despite the surprise this strong mother birthed her baby beautifully and safely in to the world.
“On the morning of my due date I had a few mild cramps which came and went with me hardly even noticing them. I put it down to ‘due date excitement’! I had a sweep booked in with Emily at around midday and I was excited that at the prospect of it possibly starting things off. I took my toddler to nursery and my husband and I went out for breakfast to enjoy some child-free time before the next baby came along. Emily and a student midwife came over after lunch at around 1:30pm, and after a cup of tea and a lovely chat she did the sweep for me. She said I was already 3cms dilated and my cervix was fully effaced!! What!? My body had been up to all sorts of things without me even knowing! Emily said that we would very likely have our baby today and said to call the team when things ramped up, and advised that we inflate the birthing pool. Having the sweep at home was much more relaxing than at hospital (if you can call a sweep relaxing!?).
It was such a pleasure and privilege to observe this lovely family welcome this little lady calmly in to the world at home in the pool last night.
What a fantastic start to 2020!
