Another little man is here. William arrived on 27 February after a speedy, 4 hour labour. Despite the short timescales and diversions on the A52 (road closed at Elton), I stayed very calm and William was born within an hour of us arriving at Nottingham City Hospital. I didn’t get chance to listen to the CD, or sniff the aromatherapy oils I bought to use during labour, but I feel sure the mindful mamma course and the time spent listening to the CD leading up to the birth gave me the confidence that my baby and my body could manage labour and birth – which we did!
William also likes to exercise his lungs on an evening, but while he’s allowing us to get a good few hours sleep on a night, I’m quite happy to listen to him during Coronation Street!
