    What an amzing story. How courageous of you, 50 hrs! No matter how he arrived, thankfully the two of you are fine! What a good sized bub he was too. In saying it was horrible, you have a good story to tell him about his birth in years to come. If you have another child in the futures, I hope things turn out more to the way you plan.

    Although scary, would have been amazing to see the ash falling around the hossy too. Our hossy has massive windows for the maternity ward and the rooms all look out across our country town. When I had been in there visiting others that had had their babies, I never thought much of it, when I was in labour, I found it simply beautiful to look out. You can see for miles it seems.

    May your precious little bundle Lachlan fill your lives with love laughter and happiness always

    Wow, congratulations.
    We must be birth buddies or something. My labour was also 50hrs, I had water injections (the only time I swore in the whole labour) as Olive was posterier and in the end had a forceps delivery which resulted in a massive bleed and lots of stitches but I was also preped for a ceaser.

    I can totally understand what you went through and 5mths on I still think about my birth experience but the trauma does heal with time and I am even planning no.2 next year. It feels great to share your story doesn't it? it a great way to begin the healing process.
    You did a wonderful job.

    Can't believe the slackness of some of those doctors and midwives. Glad everything ended happily for you though. Welcome to your new man Lachlan

    Wow, i'm only just reading this now.

    What a dramatic birth story! I was sitting reading this eating a nectarine with juice running down my chin and my eyes out on stalks Dee! FIFTY hours of labour! Then a gigantic boy and ash falling all around as the fires raged....wow.

    I soooo felt your pain when you got the VE and was 3cm - though i had a paltry 12 hours of painful ctx before i was examined and found to be only 2cm. I can't believe how long you were in labour and all the crazy crap that got thrown at you. Thanks so much for sharing your amazing birth story, DS will no doubt enjoy being told about his dramatic entrance, a beautiful baby giant born into a firestorm, for years to come.

    What a birth story! It really reminds me of mine, i had 57.5 hours of labour, i know what thats like!! Although Tilly was a vaginal birth. Just took so looonnnggg to get to 10cms!!
    Tillys birth wasnt as dramatic, but we certainly had our trying times.. But like you said, it's very very worth it!!

    Congratulations on your little man, Lachlan Jack!

    And i hope if there's a next time around, its a lot smoother!!
