  • Well I started getting pains on Wednesday evening, they then  woke me at 1am, 5minutes apart..I waited it out till they became painful which took me to 5.30. The local delivery suite asked me to go in for assessment, where I was 4cm. Had progressed to 6cm by 9am, but the more they assessed me they realised Rocco was back to back, I was really struggling with just gas&air  so opted for pethidine (diamorph ). It did  take the edge of the pain but it was still there. It then got to 5pm and they basically said that because of his positioning I'd potentially have to either just go for it and push or I'd have to be intervened I. E. Forceps or failing that a section. 

    I honestly thought this was the best option until I actually tried to push and it felt great!

    Rocco arrived at 20.06 weighing 7lb 5oz, I don't have any cuts but I do have a prolapse (gutted!!) But they said it could resolve or I might have to get it sorted. 

  • Massive congratulations Jazzy!!! 💙💙💙
