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.
