Our child’s birth story: A cautionary tale tomorrow’s parents need to know

Setting the space at home was a challenge

We had just bought a beautiful home that needed a little TLC.

The clock was against us but we managed to pull a few long weeks as well as organise enough candles to burn the whole place down, playlists for the labour and a big blowup indoor pool. Did I mention it was an at-home water birth?

By day 4 of labour, we needed to make a call

Guidance up until this point had been lacking.

I still don’t know if everything is ok.

Our baby arrived and I love her absolutely, we don’t believe there are any further effects from her birth.
