Hi all,

Just a quick post to let you know that Maddison Emily arrived on Tuesday 10th Jan at 19:30. She made a quick arrival into the world, 3hrs, and weighed 10lb 71/2 oz.

Wishing you all well with you arrivals and upcoming deliveries.

Hi all,

Thanks for your messages. Maddison was born naturally albeit her shoulders got stuck so she had a "corkscrew delivery" - don't ask!!

Best wishes to you all..

likewise with the corkscrew delivery - not pleasant is it? and very wierd as when the head was born, i couldn't tell as the shoulders felt so big they still felt like a head. did you feel that too?

lyra41 · 17/01/2006 20:54

i also had the surreal experience of the mw holding Alex's head and dialing on her mobile phone in the other hand saying, can we get someone here, it's a shoulder dystocia, i need some back up! no one came, but thankfully the mw was able to do the corkscrew maneuvre successfully. phew!

lyra41 · 17/01/2006 20:55

sorry to hijack your thread, just wanted to share similar experience with you.

ange8179 · 21/01/2006 09:52

Sorry for the delay in replying... have been busy with babe. I know exactly what you mean regarding the experience. For me I was in hospital and the room just filled with people!!

Hope your babe is fine...
