Wendy, Murray and Ethan Emerton

Thank you so much for your thoughtful gift, I am sure I will get plenty of use out of it in teh coming, months, years and decades.

Ethan Scott Emerton was born on the Thursday 14, as you know. I had a relatively easy time at the birth. My water broke at 1pm on Wednesday so we went in to hospital for some antibiotics and to get checked out. I had had mild period like pains all day but they started to get serious at about 6pm. I was calm, confident and enthused about going into labour even though it was a bit early, and I can honestly say that my confidence came solely from having attended the calmbirth classes.

I didn't not feel any pain with the surges, but I felt in control and I didn't need any medication. By the time I was ready to give up (only 4 hours later) it was time to push and Ethan was born at 00:46 on Thursday.

We spent a bit of time in the special care nursery due to him being premature, but he is now healthy and fit. He sucks well and is putting on weight and we are all enjoying having him at home.

I have attached some photos for you, and once again, thank you for your time and support, I really valued the classes and have been recommending them to everyone.

I hope you are well, and all the other ladies are doing well with their pregnancies/births.
