Jessie Foster’s Birth Story

Clare McDermot and Marc Foster’s Birth Story of their son, Jessie Foster born 19th August 2015. Written by Clare.

Relax n' BDarryl.. I am so sore and tired but so in love.

Still using breathing techniques to control my blood pressure so haven’t needed meds and believe me some of the staff in here have nearly tipped me over the edge.

Jessie is doing well and hopefully home today to let daddy take over.

Ended in an emergency section with Marc arriving just on time and then Jessie had his wee cord round his neck..

The hypnobirthing was amazing and kept us both in total calmness while Jessie was getting help to breath for the entire time I got stitched and was kept in incubator when we went to recovery.

Most scary time of my whole life so am 100% sure that without breathing techniques I would have needed knocked out myself leaving Marc to worry alone.

There really is a god, Darryl. Got a little experience of contractions from pessary but only up to 2-3cm.
