hi i had a baby girl saturday 20th october i was 11 days overdue she was delivered after 26 hours of labour by emergency c-section. the cord was thin babys heartbeat was low and i was exausted. my labour was induced and started with strong contractions every 2 mins. i just wasnt dilating fast enough as contractions didnt last long. around 30 seconds. thats a bloody long time with just gas and air as pain relief. I HAD 2 EPIDURALS THEY TOOK THE FIRST 1 OUT AND RE-DID IT THINKING IT WAS DONE WRONG TURNED OUT THAT THE SECOND 1 WAS THE SAME AND A EPIDURAL JUST HAD NO EFFECT ON ME. MY BABY GIRL IS CALLED ELAINE MAE AND SHE WEIGHED 6 POUND 10 AND HALF SHE WAS BORN AT 11:16AM

it can feel sad not to hold your baby before anyone else does. make sure you have lots of skin to skin with your baby girl, when you are feeding is a good time to do it, and spend time getting to know her
