If you follow me on instagram, you will have seen already, but for those of you who don’t – she’s here!
Our perfect baby girl, Evie, was born at 22.25 on 29th July, catching us all by surprise by coming nearly 3 weeks early – I definitely thought I would end up going over and was fully mentally prepared for spending weeks bouncing on the birthing ball and trying absolutely everything to get myself into labour, but it turns out she had other plans!
I will be sharing our birth story very soon – it was a completely incredible experience to go through labour and birth myself, particularly having cared for so many women in labour in the past – it was scary, intense, empowering, emotional, powerful, overwhelming and at the end of it all, there she was, the most perfect little girl, curled up on my chest, staring up at us!
The third trimester has been such a huge challenge; arguably more so than I would have expected, but I am absolutely loving being a mummy – and seeing Evie grow and change every day!
I can’t wait to share more of this incredible journey that is becoming a mother, but for now, here she is, our perfect baby girl!
