Saw this for the first time and it was absolutely lovely

I never really thought about having dh in there too.

It would have been lovely but ther was alot of gunk in the water!!

I was over the edge of the pool as he stroked my back and then I crouched for the final push so we could both see ds2 come up thru the water.

Best thing ever

Dh was in the pool. The midwife whispered intructions to him as to what he could do to help. It was lovely. Dh caught ds as he came out.

I hadn't realised most dhs weren't in the pool during waterbirths.

we went with the intention of ds being in the pool but he never got round to getting in. Water was great though!
