Amélie Sophia’s Birth

We are very happy to announce that we gave birth to a wonderful baby girl last Wednesday 18th September!

We call her Amélie Sophia. In fact I was reading your birth story, when the surges began around lunch time. Just 3.5 hours later our little wonder was already in our arms.

We nearly had a home birth! Everything went very quick. The surges started at around 12.30. By the time Chris got home at 1.30pm it was already quite intense. A half an hour later I felt that my uterus was pushing our baby downwards. We convinced the midwife that we really have to go to Birthcare (she suggested by the first call that I should stay home for at least another 3 hours). We arrived at 3pm in Parnell, fully diluted. One hour later Amélie was born in the pool.

She is a healthy, calm and happy baby. It was an amazing experience and we can’t stop looking at our little girl.
