Just to let you all know that Eleanor Amaris finally arrived yesterday (Saturday 18th) at 16:05. Labour was slow getting started, but went from 4 cm to having the baby in an hour (so that was a bit intense!). Baby born in the birthing pool at home with a 4 minute second stage! and only a small graze. She weighs 8lb exactly, and is just perfect

Um, that's all, really. Going to have to work on this one handed typing, I can see....

Congratulations! I love the name Eleanor - would have liked to use it myself! Another home birth! I wonder what the percentage of mumsnet homebirths is - seeing as the national average is about 2.5%!

Well done, anyway! xxx
