Baby Meyburgh - 4 May 2005

Daniel's baby sister finally arrived at 15:17 yesterday.
As she was a week late it was decided that she would be induced. Not a complicated proceedure, it is merely the application of a gel.
We arrived at St George's Hospital at 06:20 for admission. Daniel came with to see where all the action would take place. I left at about 8:00 to take Daniel to Granny Sandy and have a bite and arrived back at about 9:45.
In the meantime Alta had arrived and was keeping an eye on things. Alta who is a midwife and a friend of ours was there for Daniel's arrival and was invaluable in making it a pleasant experience. This time was no exception.
After a little walk, including a visit to the Ron Belling Gallery, we arrived back at the hospital at 12:00.
Alta decided that it was time to move things along and ruptured the membrane. The contractions picked up after that with things getting serious at about 14:30. The rest, as they say, is history.
Daniel was very excited to finally get to see and touch his baby sister.
The name will be forthcoming soon.
