Mole in one

It was an absolute pleasure to support this wonderful family as they birthed their second child in to the world.

They were also incredibly generous and consented to a student midwife and student paramedic to observe their little lady’s beautiful arrival. What a wonderful gift to two future health professionals

Leapling

‪Today the team were delighted to welcome a little “leapling” earthside.

This little one, who was in quite a hurry to meet everyone, was birthed by his incredible mum at #home in the #pool. We suspect he was excited to meet everyone including these gorgeous piglets #continuity #homebirthJustHappened #HomeWaterBirth ‬

Warm welcome

It’s such a joy to be welcomed by all members of the family!

Last week we were delighted to be able to support this family as they birthed their little boy in to the world in #water #VBAC #namedmidwife #continuity #BirthIsAmazingWhereverItHappens @RSCH_Maternity #choice

Icing on the cake

One of the amazing things about continuity is that it enhances the professional relationship with an extra layer of understanding, friendship and trust.

All of the births we are privileged to attend are special but for Kirsty supporting her friend, former student cohort member and our colleague, throughout pregnancy, birth and the postnatal period has been “the icing on the cake”.

Roarsome Adventure

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
