"The birth of my second son"

About: Margaret River Hospital

(as the patient),

After 9 months of brewing our son was ready to be induced. The midwives communicated the game plan and reassured us through the process, which I appreciated greatly as I’ve found this whole breeding thing most unsettling.

They kept me updated through the birthing process which went fairly smooth until the last bit when over a litre of blood erupted from ‘mount fookashema’. I quietly pooped my pants and observed the doctor and two midwives calmly and efficiently work to stop the bleeding. 

It did stop and after a couple of nights in hospital we were home and doing well. 

It was a terrifying experience made tolerable by the excellent and professional care we received at Margaret River Hospital. Thanks to all involved.
