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.”
