I just found your birth story through the link in your sig. What a fabulous read and what a great effort to birth such a large baby vaginally! Great job. tthumbs.gif As a midwife the one thing I am itching know though was not mentioned... what was Lauren's head circumference?

Thanks Emma.

I had to go and look at Lauren's blue book to find out her head circumference. It was 38cm and she was 55 cm long. Lauren is now 25 months and is of very average size. In fact, she only reached double her birthweight in the month before she turned two laughing2.gif

Like Freckles, I found the link to your birth story in your signature. I cried the whole way through. (The good tears, happy ones)!

We are currently TTC#2 and despite being completely fine with the EMC for #1 I am still desperately hoping for a VBAC next time around.  Your story is an inspiration and I thank you for sharing.

Wow, just clicked on your sig and read your story. Just amazing, thanks for sharing. It really brought me back to my two wonderful births. Sigh!

I can't believe how rude that first midwife was - great that you got such a lovely one on the second shift.
