My gorgeous little girl Melody decided she was baked enough this weekend. She was born at 7:47pm on the 22 June, four weeks early via emergency caesarean just under three hours after my waters broke. We were all set for a vaginal birth, however she flipped during labour into the footling breech position. Either way, she is healthy which I am greatful for.

Congratulations! Glad she is healthy :) Were you not able to deliver her breech because of her being early?

The hospital doesn't deliver breech babies, and apparently her wanting to come out feet first made them panic a bit :)

Hmmm that's silly haha :) I delivered a footling breech baby. I didn't want a c-section when I had twins haha but it was not pleasant, you didn't miss out :P

We had our last midwife visit today. Melody has put on heaps of weight and now weights 4.3kg!! So happy with that. Not so happy that I've already had my first period post-partum. I got away with five months of no periods with Monique, but she was exclusively breastfed.
