The toughest but most incredible experience of my life

Where did you give birth or where was the birth you witnessed?
St Peter’s hospital, Chertsey, UK

Can you describe where your/the birth was?

I was moved from the birthing centre to the labour ward due to pre eclampsia.

Who was present at your/the birth?
My husband

Can you describe the experience of giving birth or watching the birth?
I was lucky enough to have a very good natural birth with only gas and air. Just as I felt I couldn’t continue a feeling of power and control came over me for the birth followed by a feeling of euphoria mixed with exhaustion. The toughest but most incredible experience of my life.
