Baby Sparkle was born at home, after a looooong labour, on 30th October 2006. He joins his 3 adoring sisters..and a very rejected dog…… he weighed 3.875 kilos and is a very contented little mite.

Huge thanks to my hubby Pete for being with me, my 3 girlees who missed a day at school to help out, my mum, for her continual love and support and the brilliant Community Midwives, Ruth and Mary, for making this home birth possible, where under any other maternity care system ….. I wouldn’t have been given the time necessary to allow my baby to be born naturally.

Ever in gratitude.
