Joseph arrived 11 days late but was worth the wait

Where did you give birth or where was the birth you witnessed?
Oldham Royal

Can you describe where your/the birth was?
Baby 10 days overdue, born in hospital in dark quiet room on birthing stool. Lovely but 35 hours long!

Who was present at your/the birth?
Me, hubby and midwife

Can you describe the experience of giving birth or watching the birth?
It was very long and tiring but the actual birth was lovely and quiet. We’d had a lovely midwife with us the night before and I was glad she was back on her nightshift to be with us. I’d flagged earlier and said I couldn’t do it – she said ‘everyone says that’ so that made me more determined to not say another word! Joseph arrived 11 days late but was worth the wait.
