Our week got off to a brilliant start with this gorgeous little boy arriving earthside in the early hours of the morning while his big brother slept soundly in the next room. Such a privilege to see the wonder on big brothers face when he came in to his parents room on waking discovered the special gift thy had been “delivered” in the night! #NotSanta #homebirthjusthappened #continuity
The team were delighted to support this family in the eve of Halloween as they welcomed their second child in to the world at #home. They even provided their own mini midwife in training (their first born child)!
This amazing mother fully prepared and planned for a positive birth including developing a birth plan that covered all eventualities.
Education, maternal instinct, birth support and a trusting relationship with her named midwife ensured her little ones safe arrival earthside.
When circumstances indicated the need for a change in plan this family was already informed of their choices and had a considered alternative plan ready
The team certainly felt the love tonight as they supported this experienced mum birth her little boy at home in the pool. Also providing support were the baby’s dad, granny and aunts. His older siblings even popped down to meet him at a few minutes old
Over night the team supported these experienced parents welcome their second baby in to their arms in the comfort of their own home supported by their first born. It was all a bit too much for the dog who slept through the whole thing! #HomebirthJustHappened #HomeSweetHomebirth #continuity #Information #Choice #Support
