I am calm, open and safe

This little one was then in quite a hurry πŸ’–πŸ’¨πŸš™ But gave enough time for her Amazing Mama to get in the #pool and for us to support them at #home as she was calmly welcomed into her Mama’s arms πŸ’– Big brother was having a lovely afternoon out with a friend, followed by a pizza treat, where he proudly told all those around him that his new baby sister had been born at home πŸ€©πŸ’™πŸ’– #HomeBirthJustHappened #SurreyHillsHomeBirthTeam #waterbirth #physiologicalbirth #informedchoice #support #tagteambabies #flurryoffive

I’m New Here

Our #flurryoffour , soon turned into a #flurryoffive overnight, which meant five, beautiful babies were birthed into the arms of their Mama’s at #home in JUST over 24 hours (17 mins over, to be precise 😜) πŸ’–πŸ’™πŸ’–πŸ’™πŸ’™ This incredible First Time Mama spent most of her early labour snuggled up with her husband and their doggo, watching movies, keeping hydrated and having regular little snacks- the BEST way to spend this time πŸŽ‰ we can’t stress the importance of gentle Early labour care- It really does pay off. The team were delighted to then support her at #home a she welcomed her little boy earthside in the calm of the #pool πŸ’™We love these Hey Baby cards and all the love and positivity they bring… This extra special one is from his grandma who just can’t wait to meet him #HomeBirthJustHappened #SurreyHillsHomeBirthTeam #firsttimemama #waterbirth #physiologicalbirth # flurryoffive #tagteambabies #numberfiveoffive

Lion King Moment

Such a privilege to support this Awesome First Time Mama last week as she laboured at #home, and then continue our care alongside our lovely colleagues at Royal Surrey as she welcomed her Gorgeous little boy into her arms πŸ’™. Continuity of care works, and as a team, we do all we can to be able to support our caseload in the hospital environment as we know the difference this makes πŸ€— Our support has continued in the early postnatal period as this lovely couple settle in to becoming a family of 3 ⭐️ And this little guy will soon be running all the farm errands and getting to know all his new friends around him πŸ·πŸ“πŸ„ #BirthIsAmazingWhereverItHappens #SurreyHillsTeam #safecare #options #primip #firstimemama #lionkingmoment #showhimtheworld

All the β€˜zebras’ were in a row

A wonderful #waterbirth in the early evening πŸ’™ This incredible Mama calmly welcomed her little boy earthside in the warmth of the #pool in a perfectly created β€˜zen corner’ of the room amongst busy house renovations.
