One coffee for myself and the midwives was all we had time for before things started heating up.

Bub is Maya Scarlett and a healthy 4.05KG and 54cm. She's already and easy one - spent two hours snuggling into daddy's chest and sucking on a finger last night while mum was in theatre.

Jus is doing ok, but wound up losing a lot of blood - they're considering a transfusion depending on how she goes tonight. Hoping they'll be home in a day or two.

Thank god we live in the age we do, where something like this is considered almost trivial, and certainly not life threatening!

Congratulations, and love the name (though I liked the name so much I named my dog the same :P ) Looking forward to seeing photos of the happy family, and hearing how the Ollie is doing as well with the new addition.

Congrats. As father of two girls, I think girls are best, but one boy one girl could be considered to be the best of both worlds.

Yep, it's thanks to trained qualified midwives that we can have safe home birthing options. The particular problem Jus endured would've been just as much trouble at the hospital and taken the same amount of time while they waited for drugs to take effect (or not, in this case).

It's a real shame that new legislation coming in next year will basically eliminate safe home birthing - meaning that only the free-birthers will be the ones doing it. Alone and with no official medical support.

At present, the infant and mother mortality rate, even when taking into account congenital issues, is approximately on par with that of hospitals, if not slightly better. Once the new legislation kicks in it'll mean a rise in those mortality rates, which the pollies who pushed the legislation through will point to (as a self-fulfilling prophecy) that they were right.

I'll get off my high horse now.

Just very happy to have a healthy, happy little girl.

Thanks Pat, despite the little bit of drama at the end it has turned out ok with a happy bub and mum.

It's certainly an experience I'd  recommend, provided the attending midwives are qualified and supportive and that the pregnancy is low risk.

I'm hoping to bring them home today.

glad to hear that everyone is ok - after baby numer two (as opposed to no two's) my coffee consumption doubled!
