September 2018____________________________________To Jodie, Laura, Tanya, Heather and Caroline, (special thanks to Laura, Tanya and Alisha). My mummy and daddy wanted me to say thank you for delivering me safely in to the world. Mummy keeps telling me how wonderful you all were when I was in her tummy. When I was nearly out I could hear you saying nice things to mummy so I knew she was doing really well! Daddy doesn’t stop talking about how well you looked after me and Mummy. It was really nice being at home and Mummy, Daddy and I being able to get in to our own bed after I got out of the big swimming pool. I really liked that you kept coming to visit me after I was born to make sure I was ok (I’m sorry for having a wee on your scales- I didn’t realise my nappy was off!). I know that it’s a good thing that you don’t have to visit me any more but I will miss you all lots. I’m not old enough to eat chocolate yet but Mummy and Daddy day its really nice so I wanted to get you some to say thank you. Lots of love, E
Thank you for this lovely card baby E. We were very privileged support your parents and be present at you birth.
Lots of love,
Surrey Hills Team
Not only were the team absolutely delighted to support this brilliant second time mum as she birthed her baby at home, we were also delighted to do so along side the student midwife who had accompanied the family throughout the pregnancy.
A very special birth for this student- her 40!- and a wonderful foundation for her Midwifery career #continuity
A wonderful way to start a weekend, supporting a second time mum as she totally rocks her first homebirth.
Additional laughter provided by DJ Dad’s soundtrack choices- Salt and Pepper’s Push it in the speedy second stage!
Last night the team had the absolute pleasure of supporting a mum at home while she birthed her third baby, her first homebirth.

This baby girl didn’t need to worry about the reception she would receive as she arrived earth side because she is already the apple of her mummy and daddy’s eyes.
These amazing first time parents totally rocked their baby’s birth at #home.
The team were delighted to support this family welcome their third daughter in to the world, their second #homebirth with the team.
This birth was also very special for the newest member of our team, Heather, as she supported this family at their last birth as a student an experience that contributed to her joining the team as a qualified midwife.

We were all grinning like Cheshire Cats when these first time parents proved that they weren’t “mad” to plan to birth in the pool at home and their little lady arrived in time for tea!
