birth stories

All mums love to share birth stories and today is no exception. Alyssa-Jane Cook is expecting her third baby in a few weeks and doesn’t have any firm plans for this delivery. She knows all too well that each labour and birth can be completely different if her last 2 births are anything to go by. Strangely, the thing she remembers from both of them was that they hurt, a lot!

Sue Hodges, mum of 2 children, shares her experience of having to have caesarean births and things not going according to plan. After having a trial labour for her second baby her doctor recommended a caesarean delivery as her labour was not progressing. Following her operation she was left with the painful complication of a bladder tear as a result of the surgery.
