I’ve just delivered my Grandson in the bath!

Good morning, just wanted to share some amazing news with you all

My son called me at 4.20 this morning to pop round to the house to babysit Harry to allow him And his incredible wife to go to hospital as she was in labour. After saying a quick hello (as she was soaking in a nice deep bubble bath,) I went to make myself. a coffee downstairs.

I heard that all too familiar “mum!” and hurried upstairs where I was pretty certain she was about to deliver I could feel and see the top of his head so told my son to call 999 and say birth was imminent. Next contraction and we slowly delivered his head under the water then i delivered his shoulders and body onto mums tummy.

Thankfully he cried right away and pinked up nicely. I simply can’t believe how incredibly calm she was and and also me and my son too. He was on the phone to ambulance control giving a running commentary and handing over clean towels. They’ve all gone to hospital in the ambulance now and I’m sitting here with tears streaming down my face almost in disbelief at what’s just happened. It was one of the most special moments of my entire life to have the the absolute privilege and joy of delivering my own grandson into the world. I’ll treasure that memory forever and wanted to share it with you all! He’s called Cameron and was born at 4.49am. (I should add that I was a midwife many moons ago before I had my own kids)

Have a lovely day everyone!

Hi @Baxter2,
All ok at the moment. Have bloods and scan at the end of August and all being well they will then give me a date for the reversal. Can’t come soon enough! Trying to build up strength in the meantime.
Totally blown away by your story - you had me laughing and crying at the same time!
Love, Charlotte :x::x::x::x::x:

Baxter2

Hi @charly

Gosh, I bet you can't wait for the reversal! I'll have everything crossed for you Charlotte! Perhaps we can get another Edinburgh meet up arranged for Autumn time and catch up properly.

Yes, I'm still pretty blown away with the whole experience still and probably will be for evermore!

Take care, lots of love,

Karen :x::x::x::x::x:
