I had the most amazing supportive midwives. They encouraged me to assist in his delivery.
Easy peasy lemon squeasy.
I even cut the cord!

I am so grateful to my sister for not only coming from Broken Hill for the birth, but also for taking these amazing photos. She was a bit worried about using the camera on manual, but I set it all up for the light conditions, and you can see why I insisted. The photos are so intimate and special for not using a harsh flash.

I was lucky to be given a special gown to use during labour. These gown's are made by Cherub and Bliss, who make hospital apparel. This is not a sponsored post, I just was so happy with it, I wanted to share. The alternative was a purple gingham tablecloth, so I was very happy to have something that suited my personality a bit more. I am certainly not a pink or purple kind of girl! I had so many comments on the gown that night, every midwife I saw asked me about it.
