The story of you, my darling, my little love.
My due date was March 12th, country was covered with snow and stress levels were HIGH! The 12th came and passed as did the next, pretty much, two weeks! Two failed stretch and sweeps and an induction booked for the 24th! WORST NIGHTMARE! I had gone from longing for labour, being so excited about my waters breaking, rushing to hospital and having a natural water birth to a drug induced labour and birth, I was gutted to say the least. We got to the hospital on Saturday morning...
Jess’ Homebirth Story
On the 23/05/17 at 40+4 weeks pregnant I woke up at 4am feeling a little disheartened labour still hadn’t begun after I'd had a few birthy twinges and a show the night before, I did some reflexology to help bring on labour and fell back asleep. I then woke at 7am to some mild surges, not really knowing if it was actually labour or if it was just another twinge, it just felt like a very mild tightening in my lower back. An hour later I was sure this was definitely going to be the day we meet our baby. Mild surges were coming every 10 minutes or so.
The birth of Indio Wild - By Holly Vincent
Indio Wild, this is for you, so when you grow up you will know exactly how you came into this world and how insanely proud I am of you, of us, our journey. It is magic.
You are a rainbow baby, a double rainbow baby, infact. Before your soul was arrived, we lost two sweet babes that never quite made it earthside. It was heart-shattering. But you came very quickly after, and you filled my heart with equal parts love and worry. I was scared that you would leave me, but you stayed.
