Just a quick note to let you know that Elizabeth Clementine Greenwood was born on Wednesday 27th March at 5:05 am. Many, many things went out of the window (!) but we made it and she arrived drug free (still in her amniotic sac) in the birth pool in our living room.
Surges started at 1am on the 26th (60 minutes into our EDD!). It was hard work but amazing and she is beautiful. I didn’t realise just how much I would love her. We’re all doing really well, breast feeding was tough the first day but now going great and I feel wonderful both physically and mentally. I’m planning to come to Clissold on 10th April when you’re back and can tell you the whole story then but the vital statistics (you know how I love numbers)…3.06kg, 2 small tears, 0 stitches! 😉
I’ve attached a few pics…1 from minutes after she was born and a few from the following day.
Thanks for all of your help.
Love from Susanne, Trent and Lizzie X
