BOY



Our healthy, breathing, screaming little man arrived by planned section at 11.37am on Tuesday 19th January at 38+3.

Tobias Matthew (Toby)
7 lb 9.5 oz

He is utterly gorgeous and nursing like a champ. We got home yesterday, 48 hours after the section and I can't believe how well I feel - and I'm on such a high. Although I *really* didn't want a section, his birth was amazing. All the staff involved worked hard to make it a beautiful, beautiful experience and it was such a positive experience.

Here is Toby's birth story and pictures on my blog.

I am utterly IN LOVE
