Brother Make the Best Friends

A lovely burst of Rush hour Adrenaline for us as we tried to get to this Awesome Mama in the evening πŸš€πŸš—πŸš€πŸš—πŸ€— And….. Her gorgeous little boy was welcomed into her arms in the #pool at #home as we we’re parking the car! whilst big brother had a sleepover with his Auntie, this lovely family had a moment of calm to get to know their little one whilst all their Checks were done and left skin-skin snuggled on the sofa πŸ’™πŸ€— #HomeBirthJustHappened #SurreyHillsHomeBirthTeam #caselaoding #homebirth #support #options #choice #speedybaby

You Octopi my thoughts

This Amazing Mama was supported at #home in labour, with continuity of that support in hospital where she soon welcomed her Gorgeous little girl into her arms πŸ’–πŸ€— This lovely family we’re soon home where our circle of care continued in the early postnatal days and then we bid farewell as they venture on in the fourth trimester as a wonderful blended family of 6 πŸ’–πŸ’™πŸ’™πŸ’– #BirthIsAmazingWhereverItHappens #SurreyHillsHomeBirthTeam #caseloading #continuity #support #phsyiologicalbirth

Relaxed

This Gorgeous birth space relaxed this Amazing Mama into labour and enticed her speedy baby earthside moments before we arrived πŸ’–πŸš€πŸ€— A calming moment to then settle this lovely couple as they got to know their Gorgeous little girl whilst big sister was having a sleep over with grandparents πŸ’–πŸ’– #HomeBirthJustHappened #SurreyHillsHomeBirthTeam #waterbirth #options #choice #care #speedybaby #support
