"Birth of Darcie-Rose"

About: Warrington Hospital

I gave birth to my daughter Darcie-Rose on 29/5/15 was taken in on 28th to be induced. It was a VBAC due to a previous c section.

The staff were lovely and helpful. Acknowledged my delayed cord clamping choices. My wishes to have immediate skin to skin and breastfed naturally. My choice to use a cord tie not a clamp and just generally very supportive so I thank you.

Induction started at 930pm on 28/5/15 after arriving at 630 but obviously with cares etc and Darcie-Roae arrived just under 2 hours after my waters were broken at 3cm dilated on 29/5/15 at 5:13am weighing 6lb 13.5.

Thank you so much

In 2012 I had my first born child and everything was much different down to his crash c section and Him needed resuscitation. He was born 9/3/12 at 11:38am weighing 6lb 6.

I can say on both times care has been amazing however you have defintley improved over the years and breastfeeding help second time around was much better.
