    How amazing, I am sure it was a scary experience for the parents while the 2nd one wasn't breathing properly. Well done for staying calm in that situation and for your quick thinking in what to do i.e call the ambo, I am sure it could have turned out differently otherwise. So glad to hear both twins are doing well.

    Wowee.. what an experience! Well done to everyone! My DD came out all blue & swollen from bruising too.. OB said it was due to the fast birth (well.. the last stage was fast lol - not the entire day beforehand!)

    Must say I'm a little surprised that she didn't recognise signs of labour and waters breaking - this being her 6th birth and all

    Wonderful to hear everyone is doing well, and hooray for her breastfeeding too. Good on her

    Hi Liz
    I think that she did know what was happening but was hoping that she was wrong. She knew that I would tell her go go to the hospital being that she is not yet 35 weeks and she really wanted to birth at home. Oh by the way, her last labour was only 2 hours, the one prior to that was 3 hours this one was less than 1 hour. I think that if she has any more children she will give brth before she goes into labour!!!!

    Babies names are Caden and Reeve. so Alan did not make it. However they do not yet have a middle name.

    You are an amaing man Alan, thank god there are wonderful people out there like you that are willing to let women birth the way they want! The baby being born flat would have happened at the hospital and they would still have been airlifted to the bigger hospital, but i just bet that mother gets many a look for "risking the life of her babies, by having them at home"!

    What a women, congratulate her for me please!

    That is fantastic!! I'm expecting twins too and I only hope that the birth of mine are going to be as easy as this one. I'm afraid I'm not brave enough to go the home birth route, but hats of to this lady.

    Congrats to her and her family and well done you Allan!
