Ready for Nursery

With a very civilised call-out time to this Mama, we knew we had to make our way straight to her, due to a previous quick birth πŸš€πŸ’« … (Yes, we did make it in time πŸ€—) With both grandparents upstairs getting big brothers ready for their day, this Awesome Mama welcomed her Gorgeous little girl into her arms in the #pool in the sitting room and they were all able to come and meet their new little sister just moments after her arrival- and then head to. Nursery to tell everyone the exciting News πŸ’™πŸ’™πŸ’– #HomeBirthJustHappened #SurreyHillsHomeBirthTeam #physiologicalbirth #namedmidwife #caselaoding #support #choice #options #waterbirth

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


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

My calming influences

This Gorgeous boy was his Mamas companion in labour and beautifully calm observer as she welcomed her Gorgeous little girl into her arms at #home πŸ’–πŸ€—πŸΆ Big sister was there too with a wonderful welcome for her new little best friend and the greatest gift of normalising birth πŸ’« Thank you to this lovely family for supporting our student placement and sharing the wonder of #homebirth, a first for this student. Supporting #physiologicalbirth is key in the training of our future midwives and home is the perfect environment for this πŸ€— And of course it was wonderful to share the birth space with their lovely doula who provided amazing back massages and support throughout πŸ’– #HomeBirthJustHappened #SurreyHomeBirthTeam #support #caseloading #continuity #choice #doula #douladog #studentmidwife
