Our baby daughter was finally born on Saturday morning 4.15am 29th. She is lovely and looks just like Eva did when she was born. I had a lovely calm birth at home, the hypnobirthing techniques and all the reading I did really helped me to stay relaxed throughout the birth. I loved it all and didn’t feel very much pain apart from the rather intense final hour. It all went far faster than I had anticipated, I went from 6cm dilated to baby born in 45 mins, so we didn’t get to use the pool.
Chloe was born on our bed in just 3 pushing contractions. I didn’t actually have to push, my body just did this itself- amazing and so peaceful! Chloe came out with the waters still intact and she was calm and relaxed right from the start. We are all doing well and trying to catch up on sleep whenever possible. I am so thrilled to have had another wonderful birthing experience.
