At 8pm, Mum woke up with a birth sensation that felt a little bit different, after 4 weeks of fairly intense practice birth. She was a bit grumpy throughout the birth process, but had an amazing (and rambunctious) crew consisting of big brother and sister, Dad, and a friend who had never before attended a birth. This is Mum’s 5th homebirth, and 3rd unassisted birth (first two babies were born in the presence of a traditional birth attendant). Felix Alexander Clark was born at 10pm.
