It's a Girl!

Well that was an amazing and knackering 24 hours.

The Doc told Serena yesterday night that they were unhappy with our baby, as the baby was occasionally squashing her own umbilical cord and restricting her own blodd supply.
They felt that it was safer for all concerned if Serena be scheduled for a Caesarean Section this morning.

At 12.07 this afternoon our little daughter was born, weighing in at 1.9 kgs (4lbs 3 oz).
She is OK, if a little small, so is being closely supervised in a High Dependency Unit (One step down from Intensive Care).

Serena is also fine, if a little sore.

Here are some pictures from today.

I’ll give you more news when I have it.
