and then we had two

On Sunday the 21st of April at 12.32pm we welcomed baby Arthur Edward Higgins to our family.

He was three weeks early (both my children are impatient!) and weights a healthy 7lbs10oz.

We had hope for a natural delivery but in the end I needed to have another Cesarean section. However, all the staff were great and the birth was still pretty special.   The medical staff took our wishes into consideration and so we saw him as soon as he was out, we were continually kept informed on what was happening, and in the recovery room our midwife let us see the placenta.  Beth was rushed into the world and her birth felt like a bit of a whirlwind so this time round Graham and I had a good idea of what we wanted to happen.
