There’s nothing quite like waking to the incredible news of another caseload baby arriving earthside over night with the support of the team. Three beautiful #homebirths (two in water) in 24hours!

This incredible mother welcomed her little boy earthside in the early hours of this morning at #home in the #pool #HomebirthJustHappened

Dear Kirsty, Caroline, Lucy and Lucy,

A huge thank you to all of you for all of your amazing support throughout my pregnancy and birth.

Despite not going completely to plan we enjoyed being at home for 90% of it! We would certainly opt for a homebirth again if we had another baby (although [redacted] says that was definitely our last!).

Lots of love [redacted]

Fierce
