Ellen’s Birth – Arrived at the hospital fully dilated and delivered 30 mins later

On Thursday at 6.30am I delivered a healthy baby girl called Ellen Clare Tonacia weighing 3.7kg and 50cm long.

I laboured actively from midnight and arrived at the hospital fully dilated with bulging waters and delivered her safely and naturally 30 mins later. I had only a minor graze and no tears and went home from the hospital 4 hours later.

It was the most amazing experience of my life and I’m still in shock about how awesome we all did. Thank you so much for your education and for the belly breaths, heat packs, showers and acupressure!!
