Emma & Alexander

emmas babyHi Nikki,
Just a quick note to let you know that Alexander George was born at 08:30 on Sunday 12th July (1 week overdue, just like his big sister), weighing a very healthy 9lb 4oz.

I was incredibly lucky to have a labour very similar to my first but in half the time.

I used the golden ribbon breath throughout and spent the majority of the time on my hands and knees rotating and rocking my pelvis as we do in class. I got to 9cm using just the TENS machine, partly because the midwives didn’t realise how far gone I was. Apparently I kept smiling in between contractions.

Luckily there was just enough time to fill the birthing pool for Alex to arrive with the help of some gas & air. We waited for the umbilical cord to stop pulsating before cutting it and then waited for the placenta to pop out by itself. A very positive experience for everyone involved.

I will miss your classes so much, always looked forward to some me time on Monday evenings.

Good luck to all the other mummies.

Attached is s photo of Alex meeting his big sister for the first time.
Emma
