Avara Jillian Rose's Birth StoryCan't believe she is finally here, I started getting contractions 5am Monday morning but didn't know if it was the real deal. Had a couple false alarms. But they truly started to kick off, Was in hospital by 6.30 and was 4cm dilated. had to go to labour ward as the birthing centre was full. I decided I wanted a pain free birth (done it naturally 3 times) so asked for a epidural. Witch didn't work!!!!! I could feel everything. My midwife was lovely her name was sally, I was pushing for about 15mins that's good for me. And she finally arrived at 10.26 was so pleased. The after care I received was poor tho. Avara and myself had done the dreaded number 2 she did just after she came out. They changed the pad underneath me but left me in poo and blood for about 5 hours till They gave me a quick wash. I felt disgusting and couldn't wait to have my catheter out so I could have a proper shower.
But I have a beautiful little girl and couldn't be more in love and happier.
