Fantastic news Gem - you must be over the moon. Love that name, I was considering it myself. And such a short labour as well with your first, well done. Welcome to little Darcie. Might we get to see a picture at some point?

congratulations! and welcome to Darcie. It's meant to be very good luck to be born with the caul intact IIRC!
