Welcome baby Frida!
“Welcome to this world Frida Marjie Booth – born 18.12.2016 @ 4pm – into the loving arms of Mum and Dad at St Vincent’s Private hospital (weight 3kg).
Our home birth in hospital – Jan was just incredible. After a week of false starts (which involved a series of late night phone calls and messages to Jan) it was decided that an induction was the safest way to proceed. Throughout all the twists and turns of that final week and our labour/ birth day, we couldn’t have asked for a more supportive, considerate and experienced midwife to be walking beside us.
Jan held the space in the delivery suite and created opportunities for us to experience this life changing event as a family – something that wouldn’t have been possible in a usual hospital setting. Jan’s love and support throughout the pregnancy established a deep trust that played out during our daughters labour and birth. Our deepest gratitude to all the wonderful staff at MAMA for helping us to make Frida’s entry to life a very loving and beautiful one.
Lots of love,
Bridge, Pete and little Frida.
