that's amazing. So glad it worked out so well in the end. The operator seemed very well trained.

I read that, cried. Pulled myself together then read it out loud to DH, who paced the kitchen with anxiety...what a lovely birth story. That must have been the longest 11 minutes!!

This Story is very much like my own! I had an emergency home birth in April. My mum delivered my DS2 in the bathroom whilst my DP was on the phone to the ambulance service. We laugh aboutit now and say that poor DS2 will never live it down being born in the bathroom altho DP tells people he was born in the toilet (think people of the image of this baby with his head down the toilet [shock) Altho it was very scary at the time it was nice to be able to get into my own bed after the paramedics and midwifes checked us out! smile
