At 11:04pm on the 11th October 2012 my darling daughter was born in an unplanned home birth (We were booked in our local Birthing Centre in the hospital in our district). Due to the speed of the labour and of the imminent birth, I myself ended up at the 'business end' and delivered my daughter whilst on the phone to emergency services.
An ambulance arrived 5 minutes later and checked out mother and daughter both doing fantastically.
Its been a week I know since sending this post, but I am still trying to catch my breath with it all.
Hi Kangaroo! It's indeed a great news! It's a miracle, and evidently God's grace. How about discussing the news in the 'Religion and Philosophy' forum? We can debunk the atheists by sharing a living proof that God exists, and He cares for all.
Well done! I am just imagining the problems of manouvering a baby into the world and hanging onto the phone at the same time.
At least you will be trained for the next one- or is it a bit soon to think of it-
Well done to you all
Congrats. Now you can claim 50% of the hard work involved as well.
Congratulations... good for you for coming through.
Oh, congratulations! What wonderful news and what a terrific (and momentarily terrifying) experience! I hope you're all very happy and that Mommy and Baby are VERY healthy! Great job, Daddy!
MTC thankyou very much,
Actually being at home and in a position to deliveer my darling daughter was the best and most amazing expoerience of my life.
It was not terrififying in the least. It was awesome that my partner had a trouble free labour and birth
What a wonderful story to have to tell in the future years to come, and what a wonderful memory to have, too!
What did you name your daughter? Sorry--I'm nosy--but I love baby news, lol...
Congratulations on the arrival of your little angel. May God bless your child with all his love, care and happiness:)
Congratulations Daddy! How wonderful that you we there to deliver your beautiful daughter. That is an experience that you will always treasure! Good job!
Congrats on delivering your baby girl! What a story to tell her when she is older! 25 years ago on that same day, my youngest daughter was born! Enjoy her - the time flies by!
HUGE congrats, KJ! Wow... that's quite a story. If it was the second or subsequent baby I'm not too surprised by the quick exit. But, if it was the first then WOW! That must've been scary for both of you... I would have been mighty freaked out to have my hubby deliver one of ours. Hats off to you and your wife. Glad to hear everyone is doing so well... I'm sure you're pretty darn sleep deprived at the moment. Enjoy and congrats!
My partner and I prepared with much information and education and attended many classes that we found was inspiring and put us into a position of an extremely calm and positive birth experience - even an unplanned home birth!
That's the great aspect though, throughout the whole labour, scary or terrifying didn't come into it. It was an exhilarating experience. My partner wasn't scared or frightened either
