The Story…

Heather knew that she needed people she could trust and know would help her most during labour so choose her boyfriend and Mum to be her birth partners. After attending both breastfeeding, labour and birth classes, she felt prepared for her baby’s arrival and didn’t make a birth plan. 11 days after her due date she was induced and baby Dilan made his entrance into the world. 5 days after they were able to go home and start life as a family.
