Baby Freddie

A short note to let you know that baby boy arrived on Friday following a beautiful pool and couch birth. Unfortunately he didn’t breathe at birth and has not yet woken up and is in SCBU though the reasons for this unexpected start are not clear. Certainly the birth was smooth and the only flicker of concern came in the last moments before he arrived. He is making good progress though and is sedated to allow him to recover. We had our first cuddle last night and he opened his eyes and was immediately more relaxed and settled. The hospital have been amazing and Im trusting them to get him home safely with us when he is ready to do so.

    Here’s hoping he’s home soon to be thoroughly spoiled by the girls. Bet Max will be glad of some male company!
