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.
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
