Our little baby boy was born on 12th Aug at 17:04 and weighs 7.42lbs. My waters broke quite early, following 42 hours of labour....got to 9.5cm dilation but his head was stuck in the wrong place and would be difficult even with instruments. So had an emergency c-section in the end. What a journey! I didn't regret going through the labour experience though and felt I made the right decision at the time, based on the circumstances. I'm sure the hypnobirthing course and practices have helped!
