I'm not going to share my whole birth story now but we ended up deciding to set up for the birth, even if it was just a trial run. After putting the children to it bed it looked like nothing was going to be happening that day after all, so we watched a movie and relaxed. At 22:30 when the movie was done we got ready for bed. Once I lay down I started getting some contractions, and shortly thereafter I decided to get up and into the pool. The contractions came quickly after that and at 23:29pm our beautiful baby girl was born in the water, with D having to lift the caul over her head and off her body. It was a beautiful, peaceful and undisturbed birth.
The last week has been a special time with all of us bonding with this precious little girl and she has been such a pleasure already, she is much loved and we have been so blessed xxx
