Here's my birth story of Rafferty William who arrived in the pool at home at 4.08am on Wednesday 5th November weighing 7lb 14oz at 41+6!!. Bit long & rambling but hope I can help to normalise home birth & using breathing techniques (I went to lazy daisy classes) so even though it was painful I was in control of it (well till the end!!) & also that you don't have to be induced if you go overdue if that's not your choice.

Thanks ladies. I've read a lot of stories recently on home birth stories about people breathing their babies out & I honestly thought the idea was totally unrealistic so can't believe I was able to do it & the fact that it happened overnight so my toddler slept through the whole thing in the room directly below where I had him!!
Margot: yes, will sort out a date when I get my head around visiting (or text me to remind me as you know I'll forget!!) x
