Then we decided to rock into the delivery suite so we could score a good room
And then began the gradual and painful ascent in contractions, quite quickly the medical staff said, until it was lunch time when the pain had got too much and an epidural was sorted out.

This killed the pain, but also slowed down the process – so more contractions passed until just after 3pm when it was all push, push!

At 4pm the arrival of Amalie (pronounced Amelia) a health 4.04kg baby was born.

She is all sweetness and light.
