Partner and my mum
My partner as it’s important for them to see and be part of the delivery and support for me during delivery.
My mum as she’s my best friend, always by my side when ill (even at 27 ha ha) she is also a nurse so I would have faith and trust in her to ensure I received the best possible care!

Did you have a birth plan? If so did everything go to plan?
Yes planned c section as baby was breech. She turned on the morning of the c section!! Went ahead with section anyway due to other health concerns and my bump was measuring 46 weeks. Made the right decision to have section as she was a face presentation so there for a natural delivery wouldn’t have been possible and would have end up with emergency section! Follow your instinct!
Did you have any complications?
No c section went well followed a new enhanced recovery programme and was home next day less that 24 hours after c section!
Recovered a lot quicker than natural birth.
