So.. firstly, thank you SO much for your advice last Friday evening - it kept me calm and collected and I ended up JUST making it to St Thomas’ for an insanely quick birth.

We had a wonderful baby girl that evening (Friday) at 11:15pm. We last spoke around 8pm and I’d been having regular mildish contractions and was fuelling up with some light dinner as I wasn’t feeling nauseated just yet and had no idea how long this journey would be. I continued with dim lighting, clary sage, and lots of breathing with Chris (we actually ended up doing what probably looked like a slow dance all the way through my contractions until the end - hilarious, but that’s what my body wanted).

Although it was very intense and unexpected - I managed to focus on my breathing the whole way through and just relaxed in between my second stage contractions - Chris was an amazing ‘bubble protector’ and at making sure we got all the small things we’d like too. That’s all down to the course we did with you!!!!!!
