Woke up at 5am yesterday with surges about 20 mins apart. Sent George to work but called him home around 10am to take Evie to my parents as things were progressing, phoned midwife at 11am when surges were 3-3.30 mins a part and waters broke as I was on the phone to her. Drove to lister and things progressed quite quickly on route and not the most comfortable position to be in haha! Anyway got to hospital at midday into the pool, midwife asked if I wanted gas and air to which I said yes, but after a minute or two she said "I'm obviously happy to give it to you but you are doing such a good job without it, I think it will change how you are breathing. I don't think you need it" which was a nice confidence boost. Got out the pool briefly to try for a wee and quick examination to see where we were at, couple of surges out of the pool and head was crowning so quickly got back in for 3 more surges and he was out just under two hour after arriving. Totally amazing and such a chilled baby as a result 😍
So pleased you encouraged me to challenge my birthing options caron, definitely made the right decision!
