Sylvie, your reassuring presence during my rather lengthy labour was just wonderful. I’m not sure I could have ‘pushed on’ without you alongside providing encouragement, advice and support. Thank you for staying awake and alert when I couldn't, ensuring K was properly captured during his first moments and also that I was treated appropriately. I felt in extremely safe hands at an exciting but vulnerable time…thank you.

Janet, thanks to you for your substantial support including the many breast feeding tips, giving K cuddles when I wanted a shower and of course helping to extract us from hospital…thank you again for providing such attentive, professional and caring support at this special time.
