It made me feel like wonder woman!

Where did you give birth or where was the birth you witnessed?
Liverpool

Can you describe where your/the birth was?

It was at the women’s hospital in Liverpool, which was just perfect for us.

Who was present at your/the birth?
Me, my partner, a student midwife and a midwife.

Can you describe the experience of giving birth or watching the birth?
It made me feel like wonder woman! The rolling pain of contractions never really got the better of me, I just couldn’t believe how amazing my body was, it just knew what to do. I walked and swayed and crawled and crouched my way to the anticipation fuelled delivery of a boy (as my partner announced in the excitement of it all), it wasn’t, it was a perfect little girl.
