15 hours of labour, zero pain relief and one episiotomy later, our daughter was born. It was the most laborious time in my life and the hardest thing I have ever done but she was certainly worth it.

Probably one of three times I have ever seen my husband shed tears.

Welcome to the world, Naomi. Mummy & Daddy are completely besotted with you.

    Congratulations on Naomi’s arrival Janice! I’ve been mugging for my part-time degree & haven’t been following blogs/Twitter much till now.. Sorry for the late wishes!

    Seriously, i’ve always been the sort who’s afraid of giving birth/having children & hearing all the nightmares from fellow peers who’re already parents sure don’t help =/

    But reading your blog & seeing your maternal posts in such a positive light makes me certain that i’m gonna wanna have my own lil ones next time & enjoy it too :)

    Thanks for restoring the faith, it means a lot to me =D
