Thank you Ella @deliciouslyella for sharing your story with us. I am eternally grateful to all who share their birth experiences publicly. It helps empower other pregnant women, filling them with confidence and keeping that essential oxytocin flowing.

Birth is a physical sensation like nothing else, hers was gentle but still so hard. The weeks of intensity had given us such preparation though, we were so ready and she arrived after about two hours of active labour." Read Ella's full story:
