Eleanor & Tom Mann – October 2016
So wonderful to receive this wonderful message this morning from one of the awesome couples I was lucky enough to support x
The most amazing birth experience! I still can’t believe it was all so “easy”! We had a beautiful baby boy at 4.33am, 7lb 11oz. Name still to be decided!
I can’t thank you enough.
Ok, here it is, my birth story. So my waters went in more of a gush at 1am, I went back to sleep! At 1.30am I had a bath. Got to the hospital at 3am, I was straight into the pool room they had already dimmed the lights, so I had my antibiotics and then got in the pool. The midwives were amazing really supportive and used my birth affirmations when they felt I needed it, i.e transition when I shouted “fuck this hippy shit I don’t want to do this!” 😄 Tom was great, reminding me that I was in control and it was my body doing the work so just to trust it. I hadn’t realised how far I was so at one point thought I was doing a poo, put my hand down and there was babies head! Then it was all very calm, I went silent which as you know is not like me at all! Baby was born at 4.33am! It was the most amazing, calm, beautiful birth. He is so chilled out, he stayed asleep when he was born! Xx
