A baby boy!!!

Well the day finally arrived where we met our bump...a beautiful baby boy.

On Tuesday 20th August at 19.16pm baby Eoin Jack O'Hara was welcomed into the World at 7lb 9oz.

My labour didnt quite go as I might of imagined but the end

result was a perfect baby boy so who cares?

I laboured for 15 hours and spent 3 if those fully dilated with no progress so I was taken into Theatre for an assisted delivery. A scan revealed a baby very deep in the pelvis in a difficult position ruling out a forceps or ventouse delivery.

As a result our baby boy was delivered successfully by emergency caesarean.

We can honestly say the months trying to conceive, the 9 months of joys and anxieties and the 15 hour labour was 100% worth the wait to finally hold our baby boy.

Eoin is now 6 days old and is already developing the cutest and fascinating little personality - congratulations and best wishes to all the women on this forum...the wait will definitely be worth it.
