Kayley ' Birth Story

Hi Maureen,

Just an email to inform you of the safe arrival of our gorgeous Rosie. She was born in the women’s on 19th May.
I started with surges Wednesday evening only lasting a few hours and this happened the same time again each evening until Saturday evening when they continued. Saturday evening they started after I had put bobby to bed. I sat and ate some dinner, watched some TV then headed to bed. I slept for a few hours and then got into the bath around 1am. Around 3am we decided to make our way to the hospital.
I was 5 cm when I arrived. My waters hadn’t gone and the midwife thought baby felt back to back. Due to this being the case withy first birth and that taking 17hrs of active labour, I decided not to get into the pool straight away. I spent the next 4/5hours on the ball, walking around the room, up and down the corridors.  Surges started to come thick and fast so I got into the pool and around 1hr30 later Rosie was born in the water which was amazing. She came out so calm, staring straight at myself and Graham. No screaming as we experienced with bobby, she was so content.
Once again, thanks so much for all you guidance. We couldn’t have done it with all your support and vast amount of knowledge!!
Kayley xx
