Hi, just letting you know Ty and Zac where welcomed into the world on monday within half an hour of each other naturally.

Brilliant easy wonderful natural delivery with the fantastic epidural and no tearing, manual turning or assistance. Soooooo much nicer than my first birth!

Finished work on friday and were induced monday at 37 plus something weeks.
