Charlotte Sophie Faith arrived by emergency c/s on Friday 8th August, weighing in at 9lb 9oz.
Tried a natural labour, but she was lying back-to-back and wouldn't come out, so off to theatre we went, where apparently I was having hallucinations about sausages (do I need therapy for this?)
Came home yesterday, unable to breasfeed due to blood transfusions and an infection, so slightly disappointed, but happy to be home safe and well.
Thanks to everyone on mumsnet for their advice and help during my pregnancy - it would have been much less fun without you all to talk to!

Congrats to you and yours,enjoy your new baby daughter.

Congratulations! Sounds tough, but you are back at home now so things will hopefully seem better.
If you are interested in trying to breastfeed I'm sure it's not too late - I bet Mears or TikTok could help. Just a thought.
Welcome Charlotte.
