This family were determined to get the Waterbirth they’d planned even if it meant getting creative with kettles and pans when their boiler let them down. Amazing mum stayed calm throughout and welcomed her second son to the world about 20mins after entering the pool!
September 2018____________________________________To Jodie, Laura, Tanya, Heather and Caroline, (special thanks to Laura, Tanya and Alisha). My mummy and daddy wanted me to say thank you for delivering me safely in to the world. Mummy keeps telling me how wonderful you all were when I was in her tummy. When I was nearly out I could hear you saying nice things to mummy so I knew she was doing really well! Daddy doesn’t stop talking about how well you looked after me and Mummy. It was really nice being at home and Mummy, Daddy and I being able to get in to our own bed after I got out of the big swimming pool. I really liked that you kept coming to visit me after I was born to make sure I was ok (I’m sorry for having a wee on your scales- I didn’t realise my nappy was off!). I know that it’s a good thing that you don’t have to visit me any more but I will miss you all lots. I’m not old enough to eat chocolate yet but Mummy and Daddy day its really nice so I wanted to get you some to say thank you. Lots of love, E

A wonderful way to start a weekend, supporting a second time mum as she totally rocks her first homebirth.

Many of you may remember that NHS England attended one of our forums at the end of 2017 in order to make a film about #BetterBirths and the importance of #continuity. They finally released the video! It’s wonderful to see so many familiar faces.
Thank you to everyone that took part.

Alice and Caroline had a lovely day on Saturday meeting lots of family’s and pregnancy and birth workers at the Doula UK Bumps, Birth and Baby event in Godalming.
The team shared their stand with Paulette Kerr, project manager for Surrey Heartlands Better Births project. It was wonderful to see so many people taking an interest in the future of Maternity services and the Maternity Transformation Project.
They were gifted with a special visit from Surrey Hills Midwife, Sarah, and her beautiful ten day old daughter Maeve.
