“Morning Melissa! Our little hypno baby miracle has arrived! It was a long labour, started on Monday night and had our little darling on Wednesday, active labour didn’t start till the Tuesday.
So I wanted to introduce to u Scarlett Maya Rose, born at 4:35pm on 22nd of April at 7 pound 11.6 oz and she’s just perfect.
I wanted to thank you for your support through my pregnancy being there to speak to if I needed, you are the reason why my pregnancy and birth were a positive one! Labour was hard work and few interventions came into play but I got my goal which was to have a natural labour.
So thank you so much for making me what my husband called a power house lol never in million years did I ever think I could have achieved and done what I did through labour, so I have a huge smile and sense of accomplishment, so thank you for giving me the ability to believe in myself!”
