Isaac Johan's Birth Story
Another great home birth with our fantastic midwife!
|Some more colouring!|
|Molly keeping an eye on proceedings once baby was born...|
|Actually I nearly did do that once - |
this was me in labour in hospital with #1.
I'm smiling because even then
I thought all those wires were ridiculous...

|Our eldest passed out on the bed after saying hello.|
We had everyone come in for a little name announcement, beause as you know we had kept our final choice a secret until he was born. Once all that was done, I got him back on my chest, skin-to-skin, cover with a few extra blankets, where he stayed drinking for the next while, and we all went through to the lounge to have tea at nearly 2am in the morning! It was lovely!
|Morning meetings... |
The girls have a good cuddle with
their baby brother for the first time.
You can see the pool in the background.
I've got some other thoughts to share on the whole postpartum experience - but I'll leave that for another post.
Thanks for reading...
