Our birth story – Part 1

Here is part 1 of our birth story:)

Includes video footage of me having contractions (brought on by (I think) the acupuncture I had the day before and the membrane sweep by my doctor), our birth class with doula Celia Hughes, and photos of me after my waters broke in the taxi on the way to the hospital!

      Thanks Anna! Loving my Sorella and Me organic cotton pants:) Did you see I was wearing them in the video during my contractions? They were my favourite pants for pregnancy and also now for nursing. So comfortable! Kate xx

        Yes I did notice that! I’m so glad that in a small way we’ve helped you feel comfortable during this very important time. You’re baby girl is JUST ADORABLE. We hope she is settling in well. x anna
