We are delighted to be able to share this birth announcement from another of the weekends little arrivals.
The silver lining in the team’s suspension has been being able to continue to support so many of our caseload while they birth at @RSCH_Maternity #continuity #BirthIsAmazingWhereverItHappens
The team had the very great pleasure of supporting this lovely family as they welcomed their second child in to the world.
While the location of their birth changed the essence of their plan remained: a calm, quiet pool birth in the near dark, supported by a midwife they had gotten to know in pregnancy
This lovely mummy is a good friend to one of our team members providing her with support and encouragement when she decided to train as a midwife.
Seven years later it was the midwives privilege to return the favour and support and encourage her friend through pregnancy and birth!
On Tuesday we also had the privilege of supporting these first time parents as they laboured at home before welcoming their daughter in to the world with the support of our @RSCH_Maternity colleagues #RoyalSurreyBirthingUnit #TeamWork
