I’d like to say a massive thanks to Niamh McCabe and Margaret Rogan from the Birth Choices Clinic in the Royal Mat Belfast who always believed in me and my body throughout my pregnancy.

They were completely honest and I trust them implicitly.

Niamh was unexpectedly out of the country for the birth but, throughout this pregnancy, she single-handedly restored my faith in the system with her honesty and support after my first birth resulting in an unnecessarean.

Also huge thanks to Christina Menage who was the first of the team I’d seen throughout pregnancy to come to my side after transferring from home at 8cms. She and Margaret were instrumental during labour in calming me and allowed me to find my centre again after the transfer. I owe my positive VBAC experience to these three amazing ladies.‚Ä®Thank you all from the bottom of my heart. Because of you, I can take on the world.
