What an amazing and inspiring birth story!

You have given me so much hope. I am counting down the days until I get induced (10 days to go!) as I have really struggled with this pregnancy with SPD and sciatica. I can barely walk and often cry despite being on antidepressants for AND.

Thankyou so much for sharing :)

Super cute baby. You look pretty good post birth too considering everything.

Does she have a name yet?

Hi Pooks, I posted asking for advice/experiences on labour and birth and someone suggested to come and look in this folder for birth stories. I loved reading this and got a little teary-eyed by the end hearing about the way all the struggle just fell away and was replaced by joy. Beautiful beautiful story. Thank you so much for writing and sharing it. :heart:

:) she just turned three the other day. She’s my little mate, I’d do it all 100 times to have her here. All that work was worth it. You’ll have your own incredible love story soon, however the birth plays out x
