For those of you who don’t already know, Oscar was born at 4.26 am on the 31st of May in a pool birthing room, but not in the pool. Total labour time on my notes: 2 hours, 8 minutes. This includes a medically managed 3rd stage which took longer than pushing.
The labour was drug free…apart from 2 paracetamols I took at about 1.30 when I thought I was in for the long haul.
When I have a few minutes, I’ll post my two very different birth stories. I’ll also blabber on about dealing with not leaving The Toddler out.
Right, bum change, booby and bed time!
