I will post a more elaborate entry at some point in the near future when I have more than a few moments of free time. There’s a lot to post. The labour was full of drama. I passed out with the flu the morning that our son was to be born. We were told that our local maternity unit was closed for the first time in its history sending us on a 30 mile detour while Debbie’s contractions were coming every two minutes and her waters had gone.
Thankfully, I witnessed the perfect birth of our son and the most important thing of all went very well. It was a relatively calm experience with just the one midwife in a nice delivery room with the lights dimmed down low. The memory will live with me forever.
