Verity arrived at just before 6 this morning weighing just shy of 8lb. Wonderful calm homebirth (apart from a teensy bit of a swear from the 'serene' birthing mother whilst in transition).

Waters broke at midnight and contractions started after about an hour. Managed cx with TENS and a lot of mooing until about 5.20 when things became v intense and I started insisting that I couldn't do it and I wanted to stop. A good vomit later and I started to feel a bit pushy. Then my body just took over and she was out in just a few pushes.

She latched on pretty much straight away and has been feeding eagerly ever since - much easier than 1st time round. DS came down at about 8am to meet his new sister.

Whole family in a wonderful hormonal fug of happiness smile smile smile

p.s. community mw was fantastic and just let me get on with it.
