This little fella was in such a hurry to arrive earthside that he couldn’t wait a moment longer and birthed speedily in to his fathers hands before anyone else could arrive!
His mummy had this to say about his arrival…
“Where do I even begin…Wilbur Robin Alfred Ruocco was born at home on Friday 1st May, delivered by his very own Daddy. (I think this is the only time Mike has taken a selfie 🤳)! This experience has completely transformed me and I feel so grateful for all that I have.
Thank you Wilbur for doing it exactly as I had hoped, and for giving me such a positive experience in a time of strangeness. I owe you a lot little fella.
My care from the home birth team came quite late into the pregnancy as we had moved to the area when I was 33 weeks, but instantly the team made you feel very welcome.
The opportunity to meet you all has made such a huge difference to my mindset and knowing I had the support of you all made me feel at complete ease.
It has been first class, you are a fantastic group of women who have turned my experience of birth into such a positive one. You have supported my decisions and fulfilled me with absolute confidence and calmness, and for that I’ll be eternally grateful.”
Then five became six this morning as this little lady gave her mum the Waterbirth she had always dreamed of! 🧜♀️ #HomeBirthJustHappened #HomeWaterBirth #Choice #BetterBirths @RSCH_Maternity

It was an absolute privilege to support these first time parents at the weekend as they brought their little boy in to the world.
He may have had his own birth plan but mum and dad adapted with calm, grace and aplomb #birthisamazingwhereverithappens @RSCH_Maternity
As I embark on writing down my birthing story I stop and look down at the most precious and beautiful sight – my newborn baby girl.
The beginning seems a crazy place to start – to imagine all the steps that led to the ‘welcome to the world’ moment!
I envisioned a Homebirth to be calm, relaxed and empowering and it proved to be that and sooooo much more.

I feel quite emotional writing this. it’s just over two weeks since my birth and I am quite sad that it is getting further in the past. I don’t think many mums feel this way about their birth experience!
Recently being discharged and meeting my health visitor reminded me of all the reasons I wanted a home birth, with a team that understood and respected my wishes for a calm, relaxed experience.
Each one of the Surrey Hills team was incredible. I am truly grateful for them helping me have the birth experience I wanted. Continue reading
