I got the call at 4 30am. My client was well over 40 weeks. She rang to tell me that things were pretty intense, and she would like me to meet her at the Family Birth Centre (FBC).
I always wake with adrenalin at that time of the morning. Listening to her as she paused our conversation through a Birthing Wave, I knew that this was it.
So very excited for her as going beyond 40 weeks, had meant she had to meet additional appointments and requirements to continue to be cared for, and birth at the FBC. She had faced a lot of pressure and as always there were deadlines.
