One year ago today Becksie stood in the shower at 7.25am having mild contractions and thought to herself this isn’t that painful.
One year ago today at 11am Becksie knew childbirth was going to hurt A LOT!
One year ago today Becksie was given frankincense to smell to slow her breathing.
One year ago today Becksie kept looking at the clock thinking my baby will be born any minute.
One year ago today we still didn’t know if Lizzie was a Lizzie or a William!

One year ago today Anne reassured Becksie she was just entering the transition stage of labour and was NOT going to die.
