“Just a little note to say thank you for all of your support in bringing our little girl in to the world.

Lucy made me so excited about birth and gave [redacted] the confidence to support me and be apart of the birth.

Caroline’s advice on baby care will also stick in my head- Pringle fingers and poo pockets. She also gave me the confidence to have a positive hospital birth once we knew that was the route we were taking.

Kirsty and Becca have been great now our little one is here and helped us adjust to parent life.

Thank you so much for everything,

Lots of love,

[redacted]”

This baby was in no hurry to meet her big sisters and was far too comfortable snuggled up with her mummy.
